On Russia And Eurovision.
To be honest, I think most of us agree that she had BY FAR, the best voice and the best song, it had a message, and she meant what she sang, some people find her overly emotional, but I find her true to what she sang.
Its sad reading comments that attack her just because of the things her government has done, the girl is not Putin, and does not englobe Russia as a whole by any means, I do not intend to say Russia is a bad country, what I want to say is that the image that it has had over the last couple years, unluckily, overshadowed her performance, most people say “Russia” when this was not about Russia, this was about Polina, as a person. It was also sad to see how some countries voted against her performance, its not coherent that she was getting 8+ and all of a sudden she gets only below 5’s or in some case, not even 1 point.
If the fear of the people was about having Eurovision in Russia next year, this could have actually been an opportunity for Europe + Australia to help Russia’s LGTB+, and in some way to put pressure and help the Russians to have more equality. Also., an opportunity for Russia to prove that not everything or everyone is as it is portrayed by the media.
