Russia 'outrage' at Eurovision 'stolen votes'


A row has erupted involving Russia and Azerbaijan over the Eurovision song contest.

Sergei Lavrov said Russia should have been awarded 10 points by Azerbaijan, not zero.

He said the points had been "stolen" from Russia's contender, Dina Garipova.

''This outrageous action will not remain without a response,'' he added.
