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.

Looks like only Daria Antonyuk remains from the shortlist, everyone else has ruled themselves out including Panayatov who I think was the clear favourite. Although Nargiz has returned to the rumour list as she has a spare May going.

Daria with a Swedish peace ballad seems about right I think!

There's still ongoing rumours that a withdrawal/boycott could be on the cards for Russia this year, it will apparently be discussed in a TV show next week. I hope they don't withdraw as I assume they have something lined up ready to go if they do continue with participating!

The broadcaster actually hasn't commented on this yet. It's the initiative of some politicians (yes, they don't really have anything to do but shove their fat noses into other people's business in areas that shouldn't concern them whatsoever), the loudest of whom being the same 'person' (i would personally choose 'rotting piece of inhuman garbage') who proposed that gays were burned alive. So go figure. Another person supporting this is Philipp Kirkorov, a producer and former Eurovision representative from the 90s. This one is butthurt by the juries not giving Lazarev the win last year because apparently people were voting for Jamala due to her country's alleged anti-Russian direction in politics. About the same reaction as many brits had when Jade placed 'only' 5th in 2009. Butthurt privileged f***s who don't know how things work. Except this time most of them are actual politicians. Butthurt unsexed stupid old men.

good news is at least so far Kremlin doesn't give a f*** either way so the broadcaster can PROBABLY decide on their own.

P.S.: i used the word butthurt a lot. But it's the closest thing that could describe them so yeah

Withdrawal now seems unlikely again, apparently that "debate" has been indefinitely delayed and their 2017 artist could be revealed on the same show this week.

She was apparently the runner-up on X Factor Russia in 2013. I admire what I'm reading of her story but the song was extremely middle of the road, I think Russia are struggling to qualify for the first time with this.

She was on Russian X Factor in 2013. She is severely disabled, in a wheelchair.

It's hard to not see this as a cynical ploy for votes on Russia's part
