The Russian participants who support Russia's aggression against Ukraine won’t be able to take part in the musical contest of Eurovision-2017, national deputy Anton Gerashchenko states to one of radio stations.

He explained that Ukraine had a black list of Russian cultural activists, who were banned from entering Ukrainian territory. The participation in Eurovision will only be possible for those singers, who can understand that Crimea’s annexation and the Donbass occupation was a crime.

'Therefore, I don’t see any obstacle to this, if the Russians choose the singer, who neither support Russia's aggressive policy, nor insult the national dignity of Ukraine,' Gerashchenko said.
