We've heard very little from Russia regarding their plans for Eurovision 2017, the first proper rumour only arriving this week. Said rumour surrounds Nargiz Zakirova, who has been rumoured in previous years too, after an Instagram post from her producer teasing something special for 2017. The Russian station in charge of selecting their entrant this year is the one that broadcasts The Voice, and have chosen Dina Garipova and Polina Gagarina in previous years (former winner and current judge respectively) assuming they use the Belgian rotation system - not 100% sure on that.

There's also rumblings that Aminata Savadogo could be in consideration if her appearance in The Voice Russia continues to go swimmingly and a male artist who I've forgotten the name of is the only other name on the rumour mill so far. I'm sure Russia will want to put up something super competitive in Kyiv, although I imagine the selected artist will need a strong exterior to cope with what is surely going to be quite a negative atmosphere in the IEC during their performance.

They need to send some tough band with funny song, somebody who will not care about booing or even some small accidents.

So the speculation about the Russian entry has centered around this 'shortlist' that seems to have been kinda confirmed but not officially or anything. These be the five names in the mix

Aleksander Panaytov (five time Russian NF entrant back when they used to do NFs and recent runner up in The Voice of Russia)
Elena Temnikova (former lead singer of everyone's favorite Hot Russian Pussy collective, Serebro)
Daria Antonyuk (winner of a different season of The Voice of Russia)
Nyusha (the one who read out the Russian jury votes in ESC 2016 and also quite a big name in the Russian pop scene)
Soprano Turetskogo (some bevvy of Russian operatic whores)

I imagine they'll be focused a lot on 'lets just focus on getting good press and not draw too much attention to the whole Ukraine thing' so my best guess is they'll go with Daria with the regulation Swede-penned peace ballad they do every other year. They've certainly got good options to pick from at the very least.

I always wonder when they will send Nyusha. She's been around for ages and is pretty popular here.

yeah, I guess this time Russia will try to decrease the pressure and send smb like Darya Antonyuk who's actually a 'no-name star' in relation to other contestants and has no detractive info in mass media.
As for Nyusha, she's just a big name (so-so) in our pop scene and nothing else, doubt she'll be one of the ESC contestants.
Like I remember, she was thumbs down on her joining the ESC team like Sergey Lazarev 3 or 4 years ago.
