Tina Karol spoke sharply about the performance of Ukrainian performer ALEKSEEV at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 from Belarus.
According to the artist, the country should be represented by its citizen.
For this, there are citizens of Belarus to represent their country. Even if they did not get to the finals, it’s still a competition where countries meet. If Alekseev took citizenship, it would be a choice – I want to be a Belarusian. But there was a substitution of concepts. We in our country, in Ukraine, have learned to speak what we think. We are not afraid or hiding. Now I’m saying what I think. Indeed, Belarus was supposed to represent an artist with a Belarusian passport. Yes, it is important to represent the country
said the artist, while in Minsk, where the days of Ukraine are now in Belarus.
It should be noted that in the media, the incomprehensible decision of ALEKSEEV was not discussed actively, not to participate in the selection of Ukraine for the competition, but to go to Belarus for selection. Then the performer explained this step by the fact that it was in this country that he became the “Singer of the Year”.
