UKRAINE – Police have opened proceedings for forging a certificate of the legal crossing of the border with the occupied Crimea by singer Alina Pash. This was reported to UNN in response to a request from the State National Park in Kyiv.
“The Department of Inquiry of the Pechersk UE GUNP in Kyiv is conducting a pre-trial investigation in criminal proceedings under Part 1 of Article 358 of the Criminal Code on the fact of possible forgery of the document “, – it is said in response to the request.
Mykola Chernotytskyi, Chairman of the National Public Television and Radio Company of Ukraine, stated that he would appeal to law enforcement agencies to provide forged documents to Alina Pash, the winner of the national selection for the Eurovision 2022 song contest, on the legal border crossing with the occupied Crimea.
The winner of the national selection for Eurovision-2022 Alina Pash performed in 2015 in Crimea. However, the singer said that she arrived there not by plane but by bus. Pash added that she provided the Public with certificates confirming this before the final of the national selection.
Mykola Chernotytskyi, head of the National Public Television and Radio Company of Ukraine, said that the Public Broadcaster had appealed to the SBGS and asked to confirm or deny the forgery of a certificate on Alina Pash’s illegal crossing of the border with the occupied Crimea.
On February 15, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine announced that it had not issued a certificate to Alina Pash on the legal crossing of the border with the occupied Crimea.
Alina Pash’s manager said that the certificate of entry into the occupied Crimea was provided to the Public by a member of the team, not the singer personally.
As a result, Alina Pash refused to participate in Eurovision-2022. Ukraine will be represented at the Eurovision-2022 by the Kalush Orchestra.
Despite what was mentioned in social media, there is no official confirmation that Alina herself has been arrested, so read everything in caution!
