After a few days of controversy following the finale of Vidbir, the Ukranian broadcaster has confirmed that it will not continue to try to choose a representative for this year and declare the withdrawal from the contest.
The winner of the national selection at the year contest became singer, MARUV and the broadcaster offered to make a contract to represent Ukraine in the Eurovision competition. However, after the helm of the negotiations MARUV refused to sign the contract.
