Ukraine’s Eurovision Journey
Ukraine is one of the most successful countries to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest. The country has scored eight top five placements, with an extra three top ten finishes. Ukraine won the contest in 2004 with Ruslana’s ‘Wild Dances’ and again in 2016 with Jamala’s ‘1944.’ Jamala’s win made history for Ukraine, as it became the first ex-Soviet country to win the contest more than once.
In 2022, Kalush Orchestra represented Ukraine in the 66th edition of the contest with their song ‘Stefania.’ The band finished in first place with 614 points, marking Ukraine’s third Eurovision victory.
