Ukrainian singer Alina Pash withdrew her candidacy as Ukraine's representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.
She wrote about it on her Instagram page. Alina Pash said that she abides by the laws of Ukraine, tries to bring the traditions and values of Ukraine to the world, but does not want this virtual war and hatred.
"I am an artist, not a politician. I do not have an army of publicists, managers, lawyers to resist all this attack and pressure, hackings of my social networks; threats," she wrote.
Pash said she did not want to participate in this dirty story.
"I do not want to be in this dirty story anymore. With a heavy heart, I withdraw my candidacy as the representative of Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest. Unfortunately. I am really sorry," she wrote.
Late on the evening of February 12, Ukraine learned the name of its representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. Alina Pash predictably became the winner of National Selection. Most recently, she won the Music Moves Europe Awards-2022. And immediately after the announcement of her as the winner of the national selection, the rates of bookmakers in Ukraine soared. However, not everyone is happy with Pash's victory in his homeland.
