Alina Pash withdraws

Alina Pash decided to withdraw from the Eurovision Song Contest. That is what she announced today on instagram. She made the decision after it appeared that one of her team members forged the documents about her travel to Crimea.

This is Alina’s full statement:

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.
What this story turned out to be is not at all what I put into my song.

I am an artist, not a politician. I do not have an army of PR people, managers, lawyers to resist all this attack and pressure, the break-in of my social networks; threats. And also absolutely unacceptable words that people allow themselves without understanding the situation and forgetting about the dignity of every citizen of Ukraine

I don’t want this virtual war and hatred. The main war now is an external one, which came to my country in 2014.

I don’t want to be in this dirty story anymore. With a heavy heart I withdraw my candidacy as the representative of Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest. Unfortunately. I’m really sorry.

We will contact the Public and sign all the necessary documents.

Apart from this, I want to thank everyone who supported and helped me, who heard my song and important message, not gossip about me. Thanks!

We have a story going on with you, and we have to decide what it will be ❤️

Let’s unite! Now it is more important than ever!

It is not known what will be the next step taken by Ukrainian Television, UNT. We keep you updated!
