The final of the international song contest, which took place on 14th May in Stockholm, was won by the Ukrainian singer Jamala (she is also half-Armenian, but opted not to sing about the genocide at the hands of the Ottomans – O.R).
Ukraine should call the North Atlantic Alliance and the UAF to start preparing Sevastopol to hold “Eurovision” in 2017. This was stated by the Director of the Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance Volodymyr Viatrovych.
Співорганізаторам Євробачення-2017 у Севастаполі – ЗСУ та НАТО – варто почати підготовку до фестивалю:)

As a reminder, following the results of jury voting, Australia was in first place. The audience gave their vote to the Russian musician Sergei Lazarev. However, Ukrainian singer Jamala won the required number of points to win the competition as a whole.
