Russia’s TV 1 Channel reiterates it won't broadcast Eurovision 2017, slated in UkraineRussia’s TV Channel 1 will not be broadcasting Eurovision 2017 song contest, slated in Ukraine in May.

This is reported by 112 UA TV Channel.

Such decision was made after the Russian side rejected the options offered by the European Broadcasting Union – those regarding this country’s representative at Eurovision Yulia Samoylova.

‘The EBU still offers us two options –Yulia’s remote performance or replacing her with another contestant; we consider both options unacceptable,’ the TV channel said.

Previously, Ukraine’s Security Service banned entrance for Russia's Yulia Samoylova for three years – due to her previous performances in the Russian-annexed Crimea.
