The leader of group “Leningrad” Sergey Shnurova have to test their nerves to the test. Earlier the proposed initiative that the Cord should represent Russia at Eurovision-2017″ may miserably fail. And all because of a new applicant who wants to participate in the Eurovision song contest. Vocal skills throughout Europe in the coming year can demonstrate person that the greater part of his life spent on the stage.
The Deputy of the state Duma from the CPRF Valery Rashkin has nominated people’s artist of the USSR Joseph Kobzon as a contestant from Russia.
According to the politician, Kobzon can even perform at the song contest in the Ukrainian language, as Joseph Davidovich himself a native of Ukraine. However, Kobzon such a proposal does not appeal, all sanctions that are imposed on it. Joseph Davidovich is in the so-called “black list” of artists, whose entry into the territory of a neighboring state ordered: “I’m under the Ukrainian sanctions. But I wouldn’t be scared, I would go, of course, if sanctions had been lifted off me, — said Joseph Kobzon.
By the way, the people’s artist of the USSR I am sure that even if he wanted to participate in “Eurovision-2017” in Ukraine it may not be allowed because of the fear towards him Petro Poroshenko and his entourage.
