Director of Public Television issues statement on counting of Azerbaijani audience’s votes for Russia’s representative

Baku – APA. Director General of the Public Television Jamil Guliyev has issued a statement on the fact of counting of the votes of Azerbaijani audience for Russia’s representative, APA reports quoting AzerTAc.

 

The statement says: “Russia shares common interests, human values and finally common history with Azerbaijan. Today, the cultural and artistic relations between Azerbaijan and Russia may be an example for most countries, as well as neighboring countries. Performances of the Russian creative associations with high-level vocal and acting talents attract full houses in Azerbaijan. Performances of the Azerbaijani representatives attract the Russian audience in the same way. The highest point given by the Russian audience to Azerbaijani representative in Eurovision- 2013 proves it.”

The statement says that the high assessment is only the demonstration of evaluation of our country’s representative by the Russian audience. “According to the information received by the Public Television from national mobile operators, Russia’s representative Dina Garipova took the second place as a result of SMS voting and it unconditionally was to ensure high final evaluation to Russia in Azerbaijan’s national voting. The national jury also gave high assessment to the performance of Russia’s representative. It causes concern that not a point went to Russia in the final count of the votes from Azerbaijan. In this respect, one can understand dissatisfaction of the public, creative persons with this fact. We share the opinion that Russia’s representative was strong and demonstrated wonderful performance.


We consider that the high assessment given by the Azerbaijani audience as a result of SMS voting, as well as the assessment of the national jury is not adequate to the declared points. We strongly believe that the incident committed by certain interested groups will not cast shadow on the brotherhood of the Russian and Azerbaijani people.”
