Yulia Samoylova Will Represent Russia at EuroVision

On March 12, it has become known that the singer Yulia Samoylova from Ukhta will sing for Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev.

      This has been announced by the First Channel on the basis of the selection results.

      "Yulia is a unique singer, a charming girl and an experienced contestant. A musical career requires tremendous emotional and physical effort, which few people can shoulder. I'm delighted with the success that Yulia is striving for along the way," -  the head of the Russian delegation at the contest, Yuri Aksyuta said.

      Physically challenged, Yulia Samoylova has been confined to a wheel-chair since childhood. She took the 2nd prize at the Factor A project in 2013 and sang at the opening ceremony of the Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi in 2014.

      Yulia Samoylova will sing the song Flame Is Burning at Eurovision. Following the results of the draw, Russia will perform in the second semifinal of the contest, which will be held in Kiev on May 11.
