Following the announcement of the OGAE Song Contest, it was revealed that OGAE Russia was one of the participants. OGAE Ukraine are against their participation and any further OGAE International participation at that.
OGAE Ukraine, had the following to say on their Social Media:
“OGAE Ukraine appeals to the international community of fans of the Eurovision Song Contest with a a request to remove OGAE Russia from participating in OGAE International activities and events (including the OGAE Song Contest 2022) due to official support of their government actions published on the website escrus.org on 26/02/22.
We consider the further participation of OGAE Russia in any activities of the Eurofan community as contrary to the principles of OGAE International and common sense.”
