During an interview with Greek television channel Alter, Ruslana acknowledged the love of her Greek fans and announced her plan to perform in the country. The Ukraine singer seemed excited about her forthcoming visit. With her well known attitude, she charmed the cameras with her attempts to speak in Greek and dance syrtaki.
Kalispera Ellada! was Ruslana's greeting to the entertainment news show Apokleistika. According to the main report of the show, the artist is going to give a club performance in Chalkidiki, a summer resort in the north of Greece. There is only one performance planned so far and this will take place some time in July. “I want to come to Greece and have the chance to dance Arkan, a jig which is very similar to the Greek dance Syrtaki (…) I want to see Athens as soon as possible”, an excited Ruslana said. The Ukraine Wild Dancer went on to perform her own version of the Greek dance, but the TV crew present were not overly impressed. When they showed her how to properly dance syrtaki, she complained: “Sakis ought to have taught me this!”.
Surprisingly enough, there was a thing Sakis did not forget to teach her: S’agapo (I love you), she smiled to the camera before going back to what seems to be her favourite subject: “I felt so lonely the day after the Eurovision Song Contest. Everyone had left! I felt stranded in that big city without Sakis and his smile. I don’t know why… Maybe Sakis has some kind of energy that attracts you. Even today, I don’t know why, but I feel the need to see him again. I believe that it wasn’t just a coincidence the fact that me and Sakis both happened to be in this grand event at the same time”. “Whenever I set foot on stage, I feel I get wild (…) Thanks a lot, Greece. I feel the love that you’ve shown me and I want everyone in Greece to feel my love, too”.
