The notorious Ukrainian prankster Vitali Sediuk is fined 284 euros!!
Vitali Sediuk made himself, or rather his backside, known to the whole of Europe and Australia when he streaked on stage during Jamala's performance of "I Believe In You" in the grand final of Eurovision 2017. Following the incident on May 13th, Vitali Sediuk was arrested and held in police custody for 3 days. On Tuesday, the Ukrainian courts issued Vitali Sediuk with a fine of 8,500 UAH / 284 euros for his prank. Vitali has since apologised to Jamala for the incident.
But this is not the first time that Eurovision stage has been invaded. In 2010, a Spanish man who goes by the name of Jimmy Jump invaded the stage during the Daniel Diges' performance in the grand final. He joined in with the backing dancers on stage before being escorted off stage by security guards and escorted to a local police station. He was arrested and fined 15,000 NOK / 1,614 euros.
