Ukraine has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest six times, debuting in 2003 (see ESC 2003) with a 14th place finish for the popular singer Oleksandr Ponomaryov. The country won in their second year of Eurovision being represented by the famous singer Ruslana (see ESC 2004), and finished in joint 19th place in the 2005 contest, for which the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, was the host. Ukraine has never missed a final, and therefore has never been eliminated in the semifinals.
