Propagandists of the terrorist "LNR" stated that students of the unrecognized republic took the first three places at the International Music Competition 2017 in Belgrade.
In fact, pupils of Luhansk State Academy of Culture and Arts (LSACA) named after Matusovsky and the LSACA College, Anzhela Sarayeva, Valeria Martseniuk and the Blahovist Chorus have really become winners of the absentia competition. However, they took part in it as Ukrainian performers. There is no "LNR" in the protocols of international competition.
