This will be the fourth year in a row that STB will financially support the Ukrainian Public Broadcaster, as they already worked together in 2016, 2017 and 2018. As a result of this cooperation, Ukraine achieved its second victory at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2016. Jamala got the right to represent Ukraine in Stockholm after winning Vidbir 2016 with her song “1944”. The following two years, however, the rock band O.Torvald only managed to reach the 24th place, while MELOVIN finished 17th at the Grand Final.
