As it became known earlier, on February 11, the organizers of the song contest plan to show Zelensky's video message.

According to RIA Novosti with reference to the portal, the petition was signed by 31,085 people, including well-known journalists, politicians and university professors.

According to the authors of the initiative, music should have nothing to do with military propaganda.

“The drama in his country is nothing more than an epilogue to a much longer conflict, such as the conflict in Donbass, which the big NATO states helped ignite,” the report said.

Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini also spoke out earlier against Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky making a video address during the San Remo song festival in February.
