According to her, the National TV Company holds negotiations with Kazka on the participation in Eurovision.
“But I think, now, in such situation, it is a crisis and there is no unequivocal, right response to it because the society is divided,” Koltsova said.
She was asked whether Kazka will be representative of Ukraine or no one, she said: “No one can be sent.”
Brunettes Shoot Blondes took the fourth place in the national selection and Yuko got the fifth place.
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.
