Russian gay rights leader Nikolai Alekseev said to the Daily Star: “Slavic Pride organisers have called on the artists and performers of Eurovision to boycott tonight’s showpiece event in solidarity with the beaten and arrested protesters.

“This episode has shamed the Russian government and Moscow authorities before the world.”

As he was taken away, Mr Tatchell shouted: “This shows Russian people are not free”.
