Russian media call it provocative and politicised, accusing the jury for having “stolen” the victory of Russia – and now voices to boycott the competition next year.

– Unless things change in Ukraine, I see no reason for us to participate in Eurovision 2017, says the politician Franz Klintsevitj, according to Swedish newspaper Expressen.
