Open source
Maruv became a participant of Eurovision-2019 from Ukraine. This became known after the joint voting of the jury and the TV audience on February, 23. MARUV won the show with “Siren Song” amid explosive drama and red-hot words. She’ll represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2019 in Tel Aviv. Maruv won the national selection for Eurovision 2019. She got 11 points out of 12.

Ukrainian politicians divided

The drama even reached the upper echelons of the government. Vice-Prime-Minister Vyacheslav Kyrylenko caused a storm by writing a series of tweets indicating that he would prefer the country to withdraw from Eurovision a participant who continued to tour Russia.

“I can repeat the thought of many people, but a singer who goes on tour in the aggressor state, plans to continue this and doesn’t understand the reasons she cannot represent our country in the Eurovision-2019”, - Kyrylenko wrote on Twitter.
Larysa Sargan, the press-secretary of the Prosecutor General, gave a piece of advice to the Vice-Prime-Minister of Ukraine Vyacheslav Kyrylenko not to promote another music band KAZKA due to the scandal with Maruv, the winner of the national selection. 

“The relaxed officials have relied only on the consciousness of our Ukrainian people for five years due to the absence of the informational policy and propaganda on the state level. Probably, you should start with yourself, Mr. Kyrylenko[/img]
Much of the show’s fire came from a political war of words. Controversially, multiple acts were interrogated about their relationship with Russia and their stance towards Crimea. The lead singer of YUKO stated as a result that she would give up her Russian nationality as soon as she would receive a Ukrainian passport. But that was only the first in a series of mind-blowing moments.
