"Taking into account the current situation, the unleashed hostilities against Artsakh և the coronavirus, the Public Television of Armenia has decided not to participate in the" Junior Eurovision 2020 "international song contest organized by the European Broadcasting Union this year. "The creative team of the Public Television selected thirteen-year-old Malena as a participant in this year's competition," reads the message spread by the television.

The executive director of "Eurovision" և "Junior Eurovision" competitions Martin Osterdal, referring to Armenia's decision, said. "Armenia is one of the successful participants of Junior Eurovision, it has never been out of the top ten in the previous 13 competitions. We understand the reasons for Armenia to refuse to participate, this is very sad news, their lack will be felt. We will gladly wait for Armenia's return in 2021. "

It should be noted that the competition will take place on November 29 in Warsaw, Poland, with the participation of representatives of 12 countries.
