Embarrassment at Eurovision: Ukraine gave Kuban and part of Poland

Social networking began to walk the announcement of the performances of all participants in the upcoming Eurovision song forum. It was prepared living in Brazil, a fan contest. Alert connoisseurs of history and geography immediately noticed that the movie, to put it formally, “contains a blatant violation of the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation”.

The fact that a fragment of each performance, the author of the video applied the silhouette map of the country painted in the colors of the national flag. Judging by the image imposed by the author in the video of Ukrainian singer Jamala, Russian region Kuban assigned to the territory of Ukraine.

In addition, Ukrainians graciously “unfastened” is still rather big fragments of Belgorod, Kursk and Voronezh regions, and as a added bonus, location of Beresteyshchina, and Lemko (both now part of the Republic of Belarus and the Republic of Poland).

It seems that in this case it should still not lead to insidious intent, but about the mistake. Map of Russia superimposed on videooos Sergei Lazarev, also is composed of Kuban. Crimea, however, Russia is not included.
