Putin denies dancing to Abba hits


An Abba tribute band says it has performed a private concert for Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

Bjorn Again says it was paid 20,000 to play the gig 200 miles (320km) north of Moscow on 22 January.

Rod Stephen is one of the original founders of the group, Aileen McLaughlin performs as Agnetha, and Alexander Nekrassov is a former advisor to the Kremlin. They spoke to the BBC about the claim.
