Eurovision takes many years, therefore, Russia’s refusal to participate will not affect the competition itself. No need to exaggerate the significance of Russia’s decision. This is a song contest – and no more. Healthy people should be healthy against the decision of the Russian Federation. Moreover, Russia belongs to the evrokontinent probation.
This opinion of the site “24” expressed political analyst Tatiana Lupova.
According to her, confidence that Russia will refuse from participation in the Eurovision song contest, was not. Especially when you consider that Russia had previously stated that the Eurovision song contest will arrive in tanks.
It is necessary to divide policy and singing competitions. In fact, Ukraine now need to take care of security during the competition. First of all, Europeans who come to Ukraine. Because it is a terrorist group that seized Russia, and now terrorizes the world, – said the expert.
Tatiana Lupova also noted that to refuse to participate in the competition – the right of every country. Moreover, said the analyst, after a speech to the UN representative of the Russian Federation Vladimir Safronkov, who allowed himself to public insult of the representative of great Britain, many in the world understand what is this “Turkestan” – Russia.
“Too much attention to the state, which searches for adverse events for PR. For example, recently Russia has been removed from participation in the Paralympic games. And no one is worried about the reputation of the Olympics”, – said Lubowa.
