The countries of the former Soviet Union that are missing
Lithuania, Moldova, Belarus, Armenia and Georgia are the former post-Soviet states waiting for the victory. Lithuania is waiting for he victory since 1994, and the best score was a 6th place in 2006. Belarus and Moldova will have their 11th and 10th participation respectively and the best score was also a 6th position. The three of then were very close to enter the Top 5 but the success doesn’t seem very regular since only Moldova was very close to enter the TOP 10 for several times (10th with Natalia Barbu).
The straight relation of Moldova with Romania is evident but even like that all the post Soviet countries still have a very close relation, at least in the votings, with Russia and the Ukraine. The same happened with Armenia whose best friend is Russia. Armenia’s biggest hit in Eurovision is Qele Qele which placed 4th. Armenia will participate for the 8th time in Copenhagen and only missed one contest because of security concerns. By coincidence or not, one year after missing the qualification. The Armenian results are very good since they finished in the TOP 10 for 5 times in a total of 7 participations.
Georgia is probably the wild son among all the former Soviet Union countries. With a disqualified song because “We don’t wanna Put In”, Georgia’sbest result is a 9th place for two times even they only missed the final once. Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Lithuania and Armenia are the countries with whom they have the best relation in Eurovision, and not Russia as many expected it to be.
Russia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Estonia and Latvia already won! Who will be the next?
