While Ukrainian public television announced this morning that it will meet on Friday to decide on everything that has emerged around its participation in Eurovision 2022, Alina Pash, the winner of the national final, in a dramatic message on instagram states that she withdraws her candidacy from the representation of the country in the contest!
I am a citizen of Ukraine, I follow the laws of Ukraine, I try to bring the traditions and values of Ukraine to the world…
I am an artist, not a politician. I do not have an army of public relations people, managers, lawyers to resist all this attack and pressure, the hacking of my social networks. threats. And also completely unacceptable wording that people allow themselves without understanding the situation and forgetting the dignity of every citizen of Ukraine
I do not want this virtual war and hatred. The main war is now foreign, which came to my country in 2014.
I do not want to be in this dirty story anymore. With a heavy heart I withdraw my candidacy as a representative of Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest. Unfortunately. I’m so sorry.
We will contact the State and sign all the necessary documents.
Separately, I want to thank all those who support and help me, who listen to my song and my important message. Thanks!
We have a story with you and we have to decide what it will be ❤️
Let us unite! Now it’s more important than ever!
