Ukraine have 13 participations in the Eurovision Song Contest so far with a 100% qualification record, debuting in Latvia, 2003, with a 14th-place finish for Oleksandr Ponomaryov, before shockingly winning at their second attempt in Turkey when Ruslana won the 2004 contest with Wild Dances.

The country has been one of the best point scorers, and entering every contest up until 2015, where NTU, the broadcaster stated they have a lack of funds for participation. The conflict between Russia and Ukraine could also be another thing.

They returned for the 2016 contest in Stockholm, staging a national final for the first time, where Jamala was selected to perform 1944. She won the Grand Final, breaking Alexander Rybak's points record by a huge margin.
