The “statement of Jamala Eurovision song contest with a song “1944” is actually the “dancing on bones”. When in the works of trying to use the tragedy of the Crimean Tatar people to satisfy someone’s political ambitions, I think it’s blasphemous. After all, what “Eurovision” is an entertainment show where people watch and comment on the action: someone is sitting in the hall, someone in front of monitor, someone is lying on the beach and looks through the Internet – they are fun, and the Ukrainian government under the guise of entertainment trying to promote the European audience his line of foreign policy,” said Balbec in conversation with the correspondent of TASS.
According to the Vice Premier, mixing entertainment and tragedy is unacceptable. “I wonder why the Ukrainian spectators not resent the fact that think about their country at Eurovision? he added. – Is appropriate in between songs about love or pleasure trips to sing about the tragedy of our people?”.

Susana Jamaludinova began on February 21, the winner held in the Ukraine national selection for “Eurovision-2016”. The text of her song “1944” about the deportation of Crimean Tatars in 1944 has been controversial. In particular, he criticized the Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on information policy Vadim Dengin, who believes that such compositions only politicized the competition. He expressed hope that the leadership of “Eurovision” will not allow it.
Crimean Tatars were deported in 1944 after the liberation of Crimea during the great Patriotic war. In 1987, the decision of the General Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee Mikhail Gorbachev (1990-1991 President of the USSR) Crimean Tatars were allowed to return to the Peninsula. April 21, 2014 President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on rehabilitation of Crimean Tatars and other peoples who have been the target of Stalinist repression.
