He stressed that Samoilov previously grossly violated Ukrainian legislation, having visited the illegally annexed Crimea. “The visit to Crimea Ukraine allows only across the administrative border with the Kherson region. The other way is a violation of law, which entails penalties. It is absolutely clear to the Russian side, and requirements are uniform for all… the Russian side has deliberately made this decision, relying on provocation”, – said the President, noting that the Kremlin had no need to participate in “Eurovision”, he needed a scandal.
“(Russians) it was proposed a few solutions to these issues, these proposals came from the organizers of the contest from participating using a live video of the participant completing his replacement,” – said Poroshenko. All of these proposals met with strong denial from the Russian Federation that, according to the President, is proof of the desire of the authorities to arrange a provocation.
