Armenia boycotts Eurovision 2012 in Baku

24.02.12 11:15

Armenian participants of the Eurovision 2012 boycott the annual contest demanding change of the country where it must be held this year. Azerbaijan`s capital is preparing to host the contest in 2012, but the Armenian contestants definitely will not take part in it.
The group of Armenian singers sent a letter of address to the organizers of the contest, saying not a single singer will arrive in Baku, explaining political reasons of the boycott, which is along well-known conflict between the two nations, the murder of an Armenian citizen on Armenia-Azerbaijani border by a sniper.
As it is stated in their message, they refuse to perform in a country where mass pogroms of Armenians were organized and were hatred towards Armenians reached state level.
The singers announce that they are ready to participate in the song contest any time, if the European Union of Broadcasters decided to move the contest to another country, where peace and harmony will rule as it was during the Junior Eurovision in Yerevan, where Azerbaijan refused to participate.
The organization committee of the contest has not replied to the address of Armenia so far.
