Yuliya Samoylova should have presented Russia this year on Eurovision 2017.

Yuliya Samoylova is 27-year-old Russian singer and songwriter. She won various music competitions and festivals in her native country and abroad. During the musical TV project Factor A in 2013, she took the second place, and  won the Golden Star of Alla Pugacheva prize.

Being handicapped, Yulia performed the song Together in the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi 2014. She sits in a wheelchair since childhood, but lives a full life. She will be the second Eurovision artist to perform in a wheelchair, following Monika Kuszyńska for Poland in 2015.

Security Service of Ukraine, SBU, has earlier refused Russia's participant Yulia Samoylova to enter the country for Eurovision Song Contest and the next three years. Yulia Samoylova has earlier performed on the peninsula Crimea in 2015 – which is a violation of Ukrainian law.

Russian side finds the Ukrainian refusal completely unreasonable.

The Russian broadcaster Channel One has confirmed that they will not participate in Eurovision Song Contest 2017. Samoylova should have competed in Semi-final 2 with the song "Flame is burning"

Lyrics

English (original)

Day and night and all I do is dreaming
Pacing sick and staring at the ceiling
I wish I had the answers
I wish I had a courage to know

Everybody is talking about the reasons
All I wanna do is find the feeling
I wanna feel the power
I wanna go to places I don’t know

If there’s a light then we have to keep dreaming
If there’s a heart then we must keep believing inside
Ohhh…

After the night there’s a light
And in the darkest time a flame is burning
It shines so bright

Deep in the night love is alight
And in the dark a flame is burning
A flame is burning

All my life I’m searching for the meaning
Now I’ve learned to seeing is believing
I wish I knew where light is
I wish I had the courage to go

If there’s a light then we have to keep dreaming
If there’s a heart then we must keep believing inside

After the night there’s a light
And in the darkest time a flame is burning
It shines so bright

Deep in the night love is alight
And in the dark a flame is burning

An open window for love
And let the wind blow into the hearts
And we’re never apart and you’ll know

After the night there is a light
And in the darkest time a flame is burning
It shines so bright

Deep in the night love is alight
And in the dark a flame is burning
A flame is burning
A flame is burning

This year Eurovision is hosted by our the native town for 112.international – Ukraine’s capital Kyiv.
