During the award, Ukrainian fans cheered the singer with the traditional greeting "Glory to Ukraine!". Their shouts left a Russian-owned state TV journalist outraged.

"He claimed political slogans were unacceptable at an international event. I told him, it was a patriotic slogan. I also advised him to confess, because after Putin dies, Russian correspondents will realise they were telling lies", Ukrainian journalist Dmytro Furdak says in an interview with UT.

The full version of the interview is available on Ukraine Today.
