Ukraine have apparently elected to not bother trying to clone its Eurovision winner from 2004, turning its back on giving us another Ruslana and choosing instead a band who've had to rewrite their song because the lyrics were too political. Odd, that, what with the song also having been the anthem of the Orange Revolution and all. The band who wrote the song - Greenjelly - have agreed to change the words, which originally ran:

"No to falsifications... No to lies. Yushchenko - yes! Yushchenko - yes! This is our president - yes, yes!"

With something like "Boom-bang-a-bang, boom-a-bang, death to the enemies of the people", presumably.
