Ukraine pulled out of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015 due to issues in the country.

They last competed at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014 in Denmark. They finished in 6th place thanks to Mariya Yaremchuk’s Tick tock. 

The country boasts one of the strongest records in the last 15 years of the contest. Since their debut in 2003, the country has finished in the top ten on seven occasions.
