EBU, Samoilova is a political candidate & instrumentalized to threaten Ukrainian security

Yulia Samoilova was selected by a committee to perform at Eurovision

Yulia Samoilova was selected by a committee to perform at Eurovision 

Analysis & Opinion

The Eurovision conflict surrounding Russia’s contestant Yulia Samoilova shows no signs of subsiding. Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) banned the singer from entering Ukrainian territory on 22 March, after it was discovered that she violated Ukrainian law when giving a concert in the Crimean peninsula which Russia occupied in 2014. The latest correspondence of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), which oversees the pop music contest, mentions it has not been made aware of any security threat Yulia Samoilova poses to Ukraine.

The poor communication abilities of Ukraine’s government structures come at no surprise. However, if EBU was not aware of Samoilova’s security threat to Ukraine, this doesn’t mean it’s not there. We will try to provide the arguments the SBU didn’t.

Ukraine’s rules on entering temporarily occupied territory

After Russia occupied Crimea in March 2014 and proceeded to finance, direct, and participate in an armed conflict in Donbas, Ukraine adopted a law in June 2015 providing that foreigners may enter occupied Crimea through specified checkpoints at the border with mainland Ukraine with a passport and permit issued by the State migration service.

Violators of these rules will be brought to responsibility, the law states.

Similar rules exist for entering territories of Donbas not controlled by Ukraine, the “Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics.”

The existence of these rules is easily explained.

Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea had been condemned by the overwhelming majority of UN countries on 27 March 2014, following a sham “referendum” carried out under gunpoint. In December 2016, the UN recognized Russia as an occupying power in Crimea, and Crimea – as a temporarily occupied territory, demanding Russia fulfill its obligations of an occupying state and stop repressions against Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars, the indigenous population of the peninsula who were not afraid to oppose the illegal landgrab. Russia’s crackdown on human rights in occupied territory has been condemned in a vast number of resolutions by international bodies. The latest ones by PACE and the European Parliament specifically stress that Russia should stop repressions against Crimean Tatars.

Any person that enters temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine without Ukrainian permission is tacitly supporting the occupying power and the repressions it is undertaking to preserve and enforce its occupation.

Thus, the illegal entrance of temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine is a step directed at undermining Ukraine’s territorial integrity and is a breach of its security interests.

Ukraine’s national security interests are especially damaged by such support being provided by people of the arts with a huge impact on public opinion. Ukraine’s acceptance of such violations means giving up jurisdiction over its temporarily occupied territories.

Samoilova’s concert in Crimea

Samoilova violated Ukrainian law when she gave a concert in Kerch, a city occupied Crimea when she gave a concert on 27 June 2015. The concert took place after an annual sports festival titled “World of sport and kindness” and was supported by the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation and was celebrated on an especially large scale.

The purpose of such a concert is overtly political: a propaganda event to boost the morale of the population of occupied Crimea, which is impacted by international sanctions, power and water shortages following the severance of communications with mainland Ukraine. The Russian newspaper argumenti.ru reported that the concert ended with a grand salute to the song “Russia, forward!” and organizer Viacheslav Tymoshenko, accompanied by a live tiger on stage, announced that only “kindness, which has a huge power” can oppose the international “hatred” which Russia now experiences.

Samoilova’s official VK page posted photos of her performance at the concert.

In an interview to Meduza, Samoilova herself said that she didn’t know she was violating the territorial integrity of Ukraine when she performed at that concert, adding that “it was a usual concert, everything was fine, I don’t know why everybody is so obsessed with it.” 

To this, we can respond that:

  1. ‎Ignorantia juris non excusat.
  2. If we are to believe that Samoilova is so naive to not be aware that her country occupied a sovereign land, believing that the committee that selected her was oblivious as well is harder. In the same interview to Meduza, Samoilova tells that she found out she will participate in Eurovision at the end of February 2017 when she got a call with a proposal to record a song for the contest. At the beginning of March, she knew she was selected by an internal commission at Pervyi Kanal, with no participation of the audience in the selection process.

The internal selection of a candidate which violated Ukrainian law by participating in a state-sponsored concert on occupied territory was no coincidence but a carefully selected move.

Ukraine’s authorities came out with statements that any other candidate who did not violate Ukrainian laws would be welcome to perform at Eurovision, but the law which Samoilova violated is one for all.

Other people Ukraine banned for the same reason

Ukraine’s decision is by no way random.

Up to date, 140 performers have been banned entry to the country over their actions in undermining Ukraine’s territorial integrity. Kyiv refuses entry to journalists who enter occupied territories by crossing the border which Ukraine doesn’t control, as well to journalists who undermine Ukraine’s territorial integrity with their materials. Among the persons who are denied entry to Ukraine are such heavyweight figures as former USSR President Mihail Gorbachov, who stated that the occupation of Crimea was legal, and the world-known French actor Gerard Depardieu.

Meanwhile, the group of Ukrainian activists Vidsich argue that the SBU’s actions are not harsh enough, and protest performances of Russian artists in Ukraine which the SBU did not ban.

After all, would French people have been happy to receive German singers who performed during the German occupation of Paris in 1940?

After Samoilova was denied entry to Ukraine, the (EBU) first responded by a press statement in which it stated that while it respects the laws of the host country it is “deeply disappointed in this decision as we feel it goes against both the spirit of the Contest and the notion of inclusivity that lies at the heart of its values” and later offered Samoilova to participate via satellite, which the Russian side refused.

The EBU’s letter to Ukraine’s Prime Minister Groysman was less diplomatic. Sent on 23 March, it notifies Groysman that several Eurovision members are considering withdrawal, that Ukraine might be excluded from further Eurovision events, that Ukraine should find a solution to allow Samoilova to participate under the same conditions as the other 42 delegations, and that they were not aware of any information that Samoilova poses a security threat the Ukraine.

Ukraine rejected the proposal. “It is unprecedented and unacceptable to demand such extraordinary decisions from Ukraine for the sake of Russia,” Deputy Prime Minister Vyacheslav Kyrylenko said on 1 April.

Despite being banned from entering Ukraine, Samoilova continues preparations for the contest.

      She is supposedly a certified psychologist with a corresponding diploma. Judging from her utterly illiterate Russian easily espied from her anti-Ukrainian posts, the diploma, like most Russian diplomas nowadays, is, ahem, purchased. But even if it’s not, in either case she has more than enough wits to understand the nature of her Crimean adventure well beforehand, and there’s absolutely no doubt that she is participating in this FSB provocation knowingly and willingly. Given the gestalt of all the known facts about the case, any other suggestion doesn’t pass muster with logical cognition.

      • MichaelA

        well spotted

          Thanks.

            “MichaelA” is a LYING POS RUSKI ***MOLE*** just so you know….

          • Alex George

            You are the Russian mole. You follow the same tactic on all the pro-Ukrainian sites where you have banned (often several times using different but similar account names).

            You try to befriend some ukrainians or friends of Ukraine while attacking many others whenever they post positive things about Ukraine. You thus hope to spread dissension among friends of Ukraine and get them fighting each other, and not against your hero Putin.

            RARE!!!

            — coloratura soprano — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coloratura_soprano

          • Oknemfrod

            Since you’ve mentioned coloratura soprano, I should mention this. While for a long Kvitka was widely known in the US while virtually unknown in Ukraine, there was a reverse case. Kyiv Opera House prima donna Evgenia Miroshnichenko possessed a coloratura soprano and poise unmatched by anyone in the world and was a home name in Ukraine but virtually unknown in the West. Here’s the epitome of coloratura from her (it is indeed hard to believe that sounds like this can emanate from a human being):

            youtube.com/watch?v=oy07kmBnJ3k

            I am lucky to have heard her in her prime and will never forget the hair-raising “La Traviata” performance in Kyiv Opera House on May 3, 1975, starring Miroshnichenko as Violetta and Solov’ianenko as Alfred. And now we are all lucky to have YouTube and enjoy all that splendor of the past.

          • Andrew Chmile

            DAMNNN!!!

            But … in the vids, she talks that U-G-L-E-E-E-E-E Ruski hemno!

            Which is truly unpleasant sounding!
            You are used to that nasty sh*t, I understand that …..
            I am not being “political” at all here…. it’s just NASTY sounding!

            IF you ever get the chance, in one interview with the Jamala Tatar, she is speaking in Ruski about Kvitka, but I do not know what she said…. If you do run into that, would you be so kind as to let me know what she had to say?

            One thing about Kvitka, a quote here:

            But these words could not be more heartfelt and genuine coming from Cisyk’s listeners: “You can’t listen to her without crying”; “If you hear her voice once, you will never forget it”; “She makes us remember that we are Ukrainians.”

            Both singers are “different” —- “instruments” shall we say.
            Kvitka would have a “dramatic” voice as some would classify such, or “big” they would also say.

            Evgenia Miroshnichenko, is a different gig. Both singers are “geared” differently.
            Kvitka had to break off an opera career due to lack of money when her father died.

            Guy below who worked with Kvitka/Kasey wrote:
            “I had the great
            privelege to direct Kasey in about six different film shoots. She was a

            was the biggest I have ever heard.”

            She spoke R or U (and sang in both) depending on the environment. A couple of times I’ve happened to be in a Ukrophone company where she was also present, and she wouldn’t utter a single R-word. Her U was thoroughly flawless.

          I have no idea how she got her diploma. All I’m saying is that a certified psychologist with a valid diploma is expected to be at the very least proficient in her native language. Contrary to that, she is utterly illiterate; if you knew Russian, you’d understand.

          • Mick Servian

            How do you know this?

          • Oknemfrod

            I’ve heard her speak, and I’ve read what she’s written. If your psychologist started talking to you like “I sez”, “you don’t do nothing”, “should of been” and so forth, you’d question whence her diploma came, too.

          • Mick Servian

    This is a great article. It puts the main points very well.

    Ms Samoilova is an illegal entrant into Ukraine (specifically Crimea). This was a deliberate border-crossing by her. Any country would ban her further entry under those circumstances.

    The Kremlin has selected her directly, instead of following the Eurovision procedure whereby the representative is chosen by popular vote. It is clear that it did so cynically, in order to make maximum propaganda value from her disability.

    I hope Ukraine stands strong on this.
    Don’t give in to them!

    • Andrew Chmile

      STFU YOU SCUMBAG RUSKI ***MOLE*** & **LIAR** !

      You don’t fool many people here!

      • MichaelA

        It is you who don’t fool many people
        You attack some supporters of Ukraine and praise others
        Your aim is to start Ukraine supporters fighting each other
        You did the same thing on kyivpost until Brian banned you

    That the EBU panel (or committee or whatever) has the gall to act in this manner and send this kind of messages is telling me that they are (a) extremely uninformed or (b) just plain asinine or (c) bribed by Russians into supporting their political provocation.

    The Occam’s razor principle suggests that option (c) is the most likely one.

      EBU is one thing; Ukrainian LAW another. EBU can’t (but DOES) mingle in a country’s laws. Compare EBU with FiFa…there’s money involved!
      And as EBU states, the singer is no threat PHYSICALY [sic], they are right [of course], she still broke Ukrainian law as well as the own rules of EBU: she was HANDPICKED by the TROLL-store in St.Petersburg and NOT, as the rules state, by PUBLIC election/choice! (that’s also the reason ‘the Internet Agency’ refused the satellite transmission)

      “Speaking to German-language newspaper Sonntagsblick, the EBU’s czarina Deltenre lashed out at Ukrainian officials.
      “The behaviour of Ukraine is absolutely unacceptable,” she said.
      The 56-year-old power broker is currently overseeing negotiations with Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Hrojsman and President Petro Poroshenko to reach a “satisfactory solution”.
      They are the only two men who could reverse the ban on Julia, making it possible for her to compete at Eurovision.

      “I deeply regret the fact that the ESC is being abused for political action,” she said. “The Eurovison Song Contest is supposed to delight and bring together millions of people; it must not be used to incite them against each other.”

      Deltenre’s comments follow weeks of criticism that the EBU hasn’t been tough enough on Ukraine.”

      A ban on Ukraine?

      And, perhaps to prove that she’s serious about creating a space for Julia at the contest, she suggested that sanctions against Ukraine are not out of the picture.

      According to Blick, Deltenre could temporarily exclude Ukraine from Eurovision if a satisfactory outcome is not reached, though the paper did not clarify whether this referred to current or future editions of the contest, nor has this been publicly confirmed elsewhere.

      The ongoing drama is not, of course, the first instance of politics leading to withdrawal or exclusion.

    • Andrew Chmile

      Yep!

      Save for your responding to the LYING Ruski **MOLE** as though
      he were “for real” — allows him to imagine he fools people.

      You are at times hmm….rather naive… shall we say….
      … are you from Ukraine? :)

      Ruski & polaks can fool your kind rather easily from what I read in history :)

      • MichaelA

        Why are you asking people if they are from Ukraine when you are not?

        • Andrew Chmile

          Why do you care when you are not Ukrainian?

          Why do you hide your posting profile like most Finno-Ugrics & other homosexuals do in Russia?

          • MichaelA

            Most people hide their posting profile because of trolls like you.

            Answer my question – why are you asking people whether they are from Ukraine when you are not?

          • Andrew Chmile

      • MichaelA

        Why would it hurt your feelings?
        You are just trying to get Ukrainians attacking each other

  • Terry Washington

    I agree- “ignorance of the law is NO excuse!” as jurists from Roman times to the present have agreed. If Ms Samoylova did not know what she was doing was illegal then she knows it NOW!
