After the quick solution the EBU offered to the ban on Russia, the Ukranian government has answered that livestreaming Yulia Samoilova’s performance would still break the Ukranian law

Samoilova is banned from entering Ukraine as she performed in Crimea in 2015 without requesting the pass needed for it. Her persona non grata status applies to broadcasts as well, says the Ukranian Deputy Prime Minister Vyacheslav Kyrylenko.

Despite this, Russia’s Channel One had not replied yet to the offer made to them by the EBU, thus making it impossible to know whether the country still wanted to participate in the 2017 edition of the contest.
