SBU Head Hrytsak Wants To Ban Entry Of Russian Representative At Eurovision 2017 Contest Samoilova To Ukraine

SBU Head Hrytsak Wants To Ban Entry Of Russian Representative At Eurovision 2017 Contest Samoilova To Ukraine

Vasyl Hrytsak, the head of the Security Service of Ukraine, stands for denying Yuliya Samoilova, the representative of Russia at the Eurovision 2017 international song contest, entry to Ukraine for her committing an offence by visiting the Russia-annexed Crimea.

He gave the position to the press, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

Vasyl Hrytsak noted that the SBU was still studying the issue of entry of Yuliya Samoilova to Ukraine and a final decision has yet to be made.

"My opinion is that the law is one and for all! If a person has crossed the border of the occupied territory - the Autonomous Republic of Crimea - it means she has committed an administrative offence and this is a reason to ban the entry," he said.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Member of Parliament Mykola Velychkovych from the faction of the People's Front urges the Security Service of Ukraine to ban entry of Yuliya Samoilova to Ukraine.

Mass media have reported that Yuliya Samoilova performed in Russia-annexed Crimea.

The Ukrainian steering committee for Eurovision 2017 has selected Kyiv to host the international song contest in May 2017.

Ukraine won the Eurovision 2016 contest in Stockholm, Sweden.

The first semifinal of the song contest will be on May 9 and the second semifinal will be on May 11. The final of the contest will be on May 13, 2017.
