MOSCOW, RUSSIA – Moscow’s Patriarch Cyrill wished Russia to loose the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in order to avoid an “invasion” of bearded singers in his country next year, targeting Conchita Wurst, the winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.
Polina Gagarina who’s representing Russia this year is already a hot favourite to win which means that Russia will be hosting the event next year. The Russian Patriarch suggests that the nation needs to have its own competition to promote the Russian culture to the world!
Already, Conchita’s victory caused a lot of reactions last year in homophobic political scene of Russia and this year Polina Gagarina got a lot of reactions against her after she uploaded on Instagram a video where she kisses Conchita Wurst at the Green Room.
