Pesnya dlya Evropi - Song for Europe
   Russian National Final 1994 was held on 12nd of March at telechannel RTR's studio in Moscow. The host was Vadim Dolgachev. For participation in Contest 11 songs were selected, but 2 of them were disqualified before the beginning of the final. Aliona Apina's song titled "Oi-oi-oi" wasn't admitted because few seconds of song were played on Radio. Vika Tziganova's song "Kogda ya vernus' v Rossiju" ("When i come back to Russia") was disqualified because Vika wanted to sing another song instead (what RTR couldn't allow) or Vika was accused of antisemitism (the right reason of disqualification is not known). These singers were represented as guests of the contest , and both songs were sang in interval to give time for voting.
   Jury consisted of 16 persons, 9 of which were professionals in musical sphere ("experts") and 7 not professionals (members from public).
