    Where is your mind?
    Humanity cries.
    You think you are gods.
    But everyone dies.
    Don't swallow my soul.
    Our souls
    We could build a future
    Where people are free
    to live and love.
    The happiest time.

    Where is your heart?
    Humanity rise.
    You think you are gods
    But everyone dies.
    Don't swallow my soul.
    Our souls.

    It's about the Russians deporting people from Crimea in 1944 - hence the title

    No it's a dig at Russia for the Crimea situation as said above and is clearly politically motivated yet it's completely accepted by the EBU for god knows what ****ing reason.

    I did think that it was uncomfortable political and goes against the spirit of Eurovision - cohesion, not divides

    I think Cyprus (I'm literally guessing the country, it began with a C or an S xD) tried to enter a song making a dig about Putin a few years back and that was disqualified for political motivation and I don't understand why this didn't happen again to Ukraine this year.

    Though surprisingly in terms of televoting I think Russia gave Ukraine 10pts which I find odd.

    There is a vague Islam link.

    The Tatars were, to some extent Muslim.
    In Finland you can still see some historic Tartar mosques of people with Tatar surnames. The religion has more or less died out, but the history remains.
