As reported by several national media outlets including UAtoday and the press office for the president, Jamala has received the highest honour anyone in the field of entertainment can receive.
Here is Jamala in the picture above with the president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko. He together with Jamala and the mayor of Kiev, Vitali Klitschko, have formally announced the venue in Kiev which they hope will host Eurovision. The Olympic stadium in Kiev is the most popular choice among national and international press and fans. Should it be awarded to The olympic stadium, it would be the biggest venue to date with a capacity of 70,000.
