Despite the fact that fans and press encouraged the singer to give it a third try, Varvara decided not to send in a song. She took the decision after careful consideration, earlier this week.
"I am definitely not sending in a song to try to participate in the national selection for the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest. I have been thinking about it for a long time, but I am afraid the competition is more between the companies who represent singers than the actual artists," Varvara said. "In case the people who are dealing with the national selection are interested in my contribution, they would have told me I guess."
Varvara is generally known as a supportive personality. In 2006, she travelled to Athens to support the Russian candidate at the Eurovision Song Contest. "I will support Russia anyhow, and wish all the participants good luck!”
The Russian national selection takes place on the 9th of March, songs can be submitted until the 1st of February.
