Russia wants 2016 Eurovision winner Susana Jamaladinova

  • Jamala, Eurovision winner, sought
  • Alleged violation of Russian law
  • Rising dissent in Russia

The competition was won by Ms. Jamaladinova, who is reportedly being sought for violating a criminal law, for her composition concerning the deportation of Crimean Tatars from Crimea by the Soviet Union.

Moscow has reportedly placed on its wanted list the Ukrainian vocalist who won the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, according to Russian media.

According to the Russian independent news site Mediazona, Susana Jamaladinova, who goes by the stage name Jamala, was cited under a law enacted in 2022 that prohibits the dissemination of alleged false information regarding the Russian military and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

According to Russian state news agencies, the Russian Ministry of the Interior’s database lists her as wanted for violating a criminal statute.

Eurovision Controversy and Political Tensions

With her composition “1944,” Jamaladinova, who is of Crimean Tatar descent, won Eurovision.

The title alludes to the year in which the Soviet Union expelled approximately 200,000 Crimean Tatars from Crimea.

Political unrest engulfed Ukraine in 2014, nearly two years after Russia annexed Crimea when she delivered her victorious performance.

The majority of other nations consider the annexation to be illicit.

Russia protested Eurovision’s admission of “1944” because it violated political speech rules.

Nevertheless, the composition failed to offer a precise critique of Russia or the Soviet Union, despite its initial line suggesting otherwise through its lyrics: “When foreigners approach your home, they slaughter your family while proclaiming, ‘We are not guilty.'”

As Russia escalates its conflict with Ukraine, authorities have placed Ms. Jamaladinova on the sought list. There are fears that a succession of drone strikes will subject the capital city of Kyiv to wintertime bombardment.

Escalation of Dissent in Russia

A noteworthy rights organisation that monitors political arrests and offers legal assistance, OVD-Info, reports that 19,834 Russians were detained for speaking out against or demonstrating against the war between February 24, 2023, when the conflict began, and late October 2023.

Nearly 750 individuals have faced criminal charges for their anti-war positions. They have charged over 8,100 individuals with minor offenses, including disparaging the army, which carry fines or brief jail sentences.

The Ministry of Defence has stated that earlier this month. The spouses of deployed Russian soldiers likely staged the first public street demonstration in Moscow against the invasion of Ukraine.

Reportedly, Russian authorities dispersed the demonstration in Teatralnaya Square within minutes.
