Russian singer Yulia Samoylova who was chosen to represent Russia at Eurovision 2017 in Kyiv commented on the organizers’ decision to remove her country from the contest.

‘Of course I was upset; it was my dream, after all. I hoped this matter would be resolved somehow, but it just didn’t happen,’ she said.

Samoylova added she doesn’t know whether she would apply for the contest in 2018, but she’s pretty sure to perform at Eurovision some other time.

On April 13, the European Broadcasting Union officially confirmed that Russia will not be able to perform at Eurovision 2017

Previously, Ukraine’s Security Service banned entrance for Russia's Yulia Samoylova for three years – due to her previous performances in the Russian-annexed Crimea.
