Singer Jerry Heil and rapper alyona alyona responded to criticism of their song "Teresa & Maria" written for the National Selection for Eurovision 2024. Ukrainians' opinions about the song were divided, as one of the leading personalities mentioned in the track was Mother Teresa.

The nun is known for both her good deeds and her controversial reputation. However, the participants of the National Selection explained in an interview with Radio Promin why it is not worth focusing on this.

The performers assured that Mother Teresa, like the Virgin Mary, is only a symbol, as mentioned in the chorus. Jerry Heil urged not to dwell on the ambiguity of the personality, because "people who write this do not consider the situation from both sides: they do not know who disseminated this information about her, for what money, for what purpose."

Alyona alyona emphasized that, according to their subscribers, the information on foreign resources is completely different. The duo continued: India's policy against Mother Teresa was driven by political and religious issues. "Her contribution cannot be leveled. When did a person even introduce the concept of hospice and kindness," the rapper added.

She also mentioned that the nun led an ascetic lifestyle, comparing her to modern volunteers: "We are all Mary, Teresa, who did without money, without anything. Just because we wanted to win, just like she wanted people to live, not die, that's all. Like, the image is controversial, but the song is not about her."
