The source of RIA Novosti in the Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed that 'during the negotiations the Azerbaijani side gave explanations about what happened to the 'Russian points'.
"Eurovision 2013 was held in Swedish Malmo on 14-18 May. Russian contestant Dina Garipova finished fifth. Azerbaijan did not give a single point to Russia during the final calculation of votes, while Russia gave 12 points to the Azerbaijani singer.
