MARUV Will Not Represent Ukraine In Eurovision 2019

Even though the Ukranian singer won the national final Vidbir, the Ukranian broadcast UA:PBC has announced that MARUV will not represent the country in Tel-Aviv

UA:PBC post in their social media the explanation for their decision and the new representative for Tel-Aviv to be announced soon

The Social Movnik (Pat “National Public Teleradíokompaníâ of Ukraine”) and singer maruv, who won in the national selection at the contest, did not get consent to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest-2019 due to a number of reasons.

Singer Anna Korsun (stage name – maruv) gained victory in the show national hurricane as a result of an honest competition and held the maximum ball from the audience. Her performance is high rated music experts, representatives of show-business and viewers. However, in an artist who will represent Ukraine in the international arena, there is also a commitment: after signing the treaty with Pat “Nstu” at the time of the competition, the artist becomes a cultural ambasadorom of Ukraine and will not only have its own music, but also becomes the viraznikom of the Ukrainian society After the helm of the negotiations of Pat “Nstu” and singer maruv did not find a common decision on the mission of representative of Ukraine at the international Eurovision competition.

Also according to the rules of the contest (p. 2.6) Movnik-Participant Must ensure the nepolítičnij character of the competition. The situation that mind around the nacvídboru this year has signs of polítizacíí̈. Social Resonance, attempts to pressure on political forces, intervention in the discussion of cultural artist and information structures of the country-aggressor actually triggered the policy of the results of the national selection.

The social movnik also sees in this situation the danger of the escalation of the Ukrainian society, against the task of social language (according to the law of Ukraine on selfless speech, one of the main tasks of Pat “Nstu” is supporting the consolidation of the Ukrainian society ( 4. P. 2)).

MARUV also react to the news saying:

Today our meeting with ntku lasted about seven hours, as a result of which, we never came to the agreement of the two sides.

A few hours before the draw I was asked to participate in the national preselection for “Eurovision-2019”. I agreed and won, and with great pride I was ready to represent my home country – Ukraine at the international song arena.

As previously i said, rejection of concerts in Russia was not a principled thing for us. The main differences have been caused by other paragraphs of the treaty, which, if I sign, become a indentured for me. I am a citizen of Ukraine, I pay taxes and sincerely love Ukraine. But not ready to perform with slogans, turning your stay at the competition in the promo of our politicians. I am a musician, not a bat in the political arena.

I sincerely thank and appreciate everyone who believed in me and voted. And I ask you to accept this fact and not to go to confrontation. This is the given of today. I want to give my creativity without censorship.

Tomorrow I will wake up with new forces – to win and popularize my music in the world.
