Why MARUV will not go to Eurovision-2019 from Ukraine?By results of voting of the star judges and spectators, the final of the national selection for Eurovision-2019 singer MARUV won. After criticism about her performances in Russia and the ambiguous position concerning the war in the East of Ukraine NSTU decided not to sign the agreement with MARUV. The artist herself stated that no scheduled performances in Russia are a reason for this.
Subsequently, the representatives of NSTU invited the other finalists of the national selection to represent the country on Eurovision song contest in 2019, but they refused. Therefore, in 2019, none of the Ukrainian artist will take the stage competition in tel Aviv.
