When I travel to Yalta, for me it’s Ukraine.” However, in his later comments on Ukrainian television the singer said that his words had been taken out of context. Lazarev explained that in fact he meant that the territorial change was so instant that he could not get used to the idea that Crimea was part of Russia again and “need[ed] time to realize it”; the singer compared it to the feeling of those who remember the transfer of Crimea from Russia to Ukraine in 1954: “I perfectly understand those who, in 1954, suddenly woke up in Ukraine, and who wanted Crimea to return to Russia. I know, many are happy with that. But I need time to realize that”. Lazarev added that the recording of his speech was shortened and edited by the Ukrainian TV crew so as to create “an anti-Russian interview” and regretted for being involved in an information war.


On 10 December 2015, it was announced that Lazarev would represent Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 in Stockholm. In the final, he reached third place with his song “You Are the Only One”, Lazarev won the televote with 361 points, and came fifth with the national jury scoring 130 points.

In December 2016, he announced that he has a two-year-old son, Nikita, after pictures of both attending church were captured by paparazzi. Nikita was later featured in Lazarev’s music video for “Так красиво” in 2017.
