The Deputy of St. Petersburg Vitaly Milonov called the participation of Russia in “Eurovision” betrayal of the country, according to Unity.info with reference to “Russian news service”.
“It’s a shot in the back Lavrov, Churkin and all of our international representatives who with head held high to defend the position of normal people all over the world. For this cheap tinsel, for the sake of vanity, what singers we are, in fact, have to kiss the boot that now pushes South-East of Ukraine “, — said the people’s Deputy.
Milonov intends to collect signatures for the withdrawal of participation in the contest. The signatures will be sent to the Minister of culture Vladimir Medinskogo.
