As previously reported, Jamala will represent Ukraine at Eurovision-2016 with the song ‘1944’ following the results of Ukrainian national vote.
“It is important to remember Crimea, because there are people who still feel as part of Ukraine, who love us and believe in us. And there are many more of them than you think,” says Jamala.
