Anton Gerashchenko, Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada member from the People’s Front faction and an adviser to Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, says that the Russian participant in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 maybe granted entry into Ukraine, but she will be held liable under Ukrainian laws for her illegal visit to Russia-occupied Crimea.

Gerashchenko on March 13 described two possible scenarios of developments.

“[Ukraine may] refuse Yulia Samoilova entry [into Ukraine] for violating the rules of visiting the occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea,” he wrote on Facebook on March 13.
