After winning the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 in Stockholm, Jamala was invited to Lithuania to meet with President Dalia Grybauskaite.
Became close to Lithuania
“We cannot rewrite history or erase memory. It is symbolic that the Eurovision winner, Jamala, visited our country during the celebration of the 75th anniversary of mass repressions of Lithuanian residents. Her song about Stalin’s deportation of Crimean Tatars won the hearts of Europeans, and became close to Lithuania,” Grybauskaite wrote on her Facebook page.
