Alemanha: NDR desmente declarações de Iveta Mukuchyan sobre Nagorno-Karabakh


A NDR confirmou que Iveta Mukuchyan, representante da Arménia no Festival Eurovisão de 2016, foi convidada para representar a Alemanha em Roterdão, mas desmente as declarações sobre a questão de Nagorno-Karabakh.

 

A cantora Iveta Mukuchyan, sétima classificada no Festival Eurovisão 2016, revelou, através das redes sociais, que foi convidada para representar a Alemanha no Festival Eurovisão 2021, depois de ter sido recomendada por um júri de 200 especialistas. No entanto, a cantora frisou que o convite foi posteriormente retirado devido à questão de Nagorno-Karabakh: em 2016, a artista comemorou o apuramento com a bandeira da região disputada por arménios e azeris, algo que foi apontado como um ato provocatório para com a comitiva do Azerbaijão.

No entanto, a emissora alemã NDR negou que a retirada do convite esteja relacionada com a polémica de 2016: "Para o processo de seleção, a NDR e a Digame concordaram que a Alemanha não deve ser representada por artistas que já participaram no concurso por outro país" referiu um porta-voz da NDR, esclarecendo a situação de Iveta Mukuchyan, "A Iveta foi incluída por engano e foi contactada (...) O contacto foi cancelado pela Digame quando notado o erro. Não há nenhum outro motivo. As declarações políticas não tiveram qualquer influência".

I know how unpleasant it is to read about a war that is happening far away from where you are right now..disturbing the few moments you want to disconnect from your own every day problems...it’s easy to scroll it away and make it disappear. But I urge you to take a few minutes and understand how important your every single ones actions are here at the moment. I knew how unpleasant it was for millions of viewers at the Eurovision back in 2016 to engage a few minutes into the discussion about why I put up the Kharabagh flag in a contest that doesn’t want to be involved in politics. What many people don’t know is that this year I got an excited call from Germany that 200 experts voted, without me knowing about it, to discuss me representing Germany at the Eurovision 2021. Everybody was excited, me as well. Then I got a call that the press-department said unfortunately the decision came out as rejection, which most likely points to my political move from 2016 by raising awareness about the attack on Kharabagh. As an Armenian living in Germany, I am a patriot in my heart, but educated in a multi-cultural environment. I want to make everyone understand that this is not a war between Azerbaijan/Turkey and Armenia but a war against Alliyev and Erdogan. It’s political and not against its people in the countries, that are mainly unaware of what’s going on in the past and now, as information has been and is absolutely changed and blocked to its people. When Artsakh shoots back they warn the population of Azerbaijan to evacuate, while Azerbaijan is targeting peaceful civilians. not even telling their own people to hide in bunkers. After they told me kindly that even though they would like me to participate they decided not to, I was mad at myself...regretting that my past act of patriotism would influence my career once again... Just a month after this call I wake up in war again this time its assured that 2016 was just a teaser...the real movie is now..it becomes normal to see dead people on TV, hearing about weapons... 📌You may find the continuation in comments & in my Facebook official page⬇️⬇️⬇️❗️❗️❗️
