The corresponding information was written on Facebook by the Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov.

- My dear friends! Thank you all for supporting Jamala! Unfortunately, thousands of Crimean Tatars and Ukrainians living in temporarily Russia-occupied Crimea didn’t have an opportunity to vote. This injustice must be corrected before the final competition. Crimea residents should have the right to take part in voting. All of us are working for it because Crimea is Ukraine! According to a statement.

Yesterday, Ukraine selected the first three finalists from Ukraine who will contest to represent our country at the international song contest. These will be Jamala, The Hardkiss and Brunettes shoot Blondes.
