Jamal hopes that its participation in the international song contest may raise the issue of the occupied Crimea to a new level.

«The majority of citizens (of Ukraine — ed.) who do not receive any salaries or pensions, can afford to watch Eurovision you can’t, because, first, they do not have to pay for electricity, and secondly, they don’t care to be on the Eurovision,» said Denikin. In his opinion, such a composition proves the politicization of the Eurovision song contest.
