The Eurovision Song Contest has been instrumentalised for propaganda purposes

Summary

The Eurovision Song Contest has been instrumentalised for the purposes of propaganda. The pathetic crying of the Ukrainian contestant also served this purpose.

Disproof

Art is subjective. Russian viewers also appreciated the artistic value of Jamala's performance which is reflected in the 10 points they awarded to the Ukrainian contestant.

The revolution in Ukraine was led by the USA with the aim to create a Ukro-Nazi puppet government.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. The demonstrations which began in Kiev in November 2013 were born out of Ukrainians' own desire for a closer relationship with the European Union, and their frustration when former President Yanukovych halted progress toward that goal as a result of Russian pressure (bit.ly/1Ri9ldy), . Ukraine's President Poroshenko was elected on 25 May with a clear majority in a vote which the OSCE characterized as showing the "clear resolve of the authorities to hold what was a genuine election largely in line with international commitments and with a respect for fundamental freedoms" (bit.ly/1Tdu8Qw), .
