After it was reported that Ukrainian singer Maruv would not represent Ukraine at Eurovision-2019, she commented on the situation and announced the concert in Kyiv.
In particular, the singer wrote in her Instagram not to respond to provocations and support her with smiles and applauds on the concerts.
“Thank you so much for the support! You are amazing and so inspiring! I want to make something new, to create! I would like to say some things about this situation, everything happens for good! Now I have a lot of time to prepare for a solo concert in Kyiv, to get ready to YUNA-2019, to make a lot of interesting and new things for my new album – this is the most important. I would like you to slow down a little bit and accept everything calmly, just as I did. You know that I don’t like aggression and conflicts. Nothing is solved by aggression. So I want to ask you not to join any provocations and support me with your smiles, your applauds and of course with listening to my sings. This is the best support for me!” Maruv noted.
A big solo concert is scheduled for June 14, 2019, in Stereo Plaza club in Kyiv.
Earlier we reported that singer Anna Korsun (Maruv) would not present Ukraine at the song contest “Eurovision 2019”. Maruv said that she was forced to refuse from the participation in the contest from Ukraine due to her tour in Russia.
“I am ready to refuse from performances in Russia. I have answered all the questions the jury had on air. I have not visited Crimea since 2014. I have not violated any law of Ukraine. Besides, I am ready to assume all the costs related to participation in the international contest,” she stated.
Maruv won the Ukrainian national selection for Eurovision and should perform with Siren Song in the first semi-final of the Eurovision, which will take place on May 14. Her performance was planned for the second half of the show.
Besides, STB Channel stated that the rules of the national selection for Eurovision do not contain demands on the absence of the tours in the Russian Federation. It also added that only the National Television Company of Ukraine can decide who will present Ukraine during the Eurovision.
On February 26, Freedom-jazz girls band, which got the second place in the national selection for Eurovision song contest, refused to participate in it.
