They probably thought it's better to leave on the weekend than getting the boot on Monday.Russia's broadcasters are withdrawing from the EBU.
🇷🇺 Russia: Channel One, VGTRK & Radio Dom Ostankino Leave the European Broadcasting Union - EurovoixChannel One, VGTRK and Radio Dom Ostankino have left the European Broadcasting Union, according to TASS.eurovoix.com
Russia leaving the EBU is the same kind of loss your body experiences when a carcinoma gets removed in surgery.Of course, it´s a loss "in theory" - the more, the merrier but it needed to be done. You can´t expect propaganda channels of such regimes to be part of it - of course, Eurovision should be unpolitical - BUT it doesn´t have to be neutral and shouldn´t be - especially since this war was unprovoked and the broadcasters are some mouthpiece of a fascist regime. The Belarusian broadcaster included.
It´s a loss for music and fans alike but there was no other way - we ain´t celebrating but at least, it´s a glimpse of justice.
I would say even worse, but it's not really because it was quite clear where they are standing. Anyway, I wrote to Jo Malone London that their promotor is publicly supporting invasion of Ukraine.Kirkorov and Polina said they expressed support for the Russian invasion of Ukraine. It's a direct statement.
I thought Russia being expelled was good news, but them leaving EBU alltogether? Cherry on top.
Good riddance. Rumour has it, they were going to send an 18 year old girl with vision problems
That's if you're even discussing with real people. There are troll farms/bot farms out there where people appear to be real people but are fake accounts by people paid to spread propaganda while appearing to be real people to seem more credible and avoid being banned.I recommend to not discussing with them. They are brainwashed by their government for a long time.
Can you point me to it? I don't see it anywhere.
You weren't. At least I didn't take it that way. I simply didn't know where this political thread was. But another told me where to find it.
I always get shouted at for mentioning politics outside that. Section. I’m actually speaking with ua embassy to fly over and assist.
I just wanted to make a point. I didn’t mean to be a dick
