Ukrainian Eurovision winner Jamala said her song was more about music and feelings than politics. Speaking at a news conference in Kyiv, she said she was "sad" it was being linked to politics. The song, entitled 1944, tells the story of the deportations of Crimean Tatars under Stalin -- and has been widely seen as a comment on Russia's 2014 annexation of the peninsula.
