In Full: Ukraine’s Eurovision Attack On Russia

Ukraine’s politically-motivated entry 1944 won the 2016 Eurovision contest last night in a blatant attack on Russia’s treatment of Crimea.

The song, by Jamala, made references to “strangers” coming “into your house” and killing you. It continues, “you think you are gods, but every one dies”.

The 2016 contest was typically full of political motives, with Britain’s entry also in the spotlight as the country takes to the polls next months in a referendum on whether to stay in the EU.

But after years of harsdship and strife, Ukraine’s entry was certainly the most passionate attack:

1944

When strangers are coming…
They come to your house,
They kill you all
and say,
We’re not guilty
not guilty.

Where is your mind?
Humanity cries.
You think you are gods.
But everyone dies.
Don’t swallow my soul.
Our souls

Yaşlığıma toyalmadım
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım
Yaşlığıma toyalmadım
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım

We could build a future
Where people are free
to live and love.
The happiest time.

Where is your heart?
Humanity rise.
You think you are gods
But everyone dies.
Don’t swallow my soul.
Our souls.

Yaşlığıma toyalmadım
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım
Yaşlığıma toyalmadım
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım
