Georgian song pokes fun at Putin


Georgia has chosen an entry which takes a swipe at Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin for May's Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow.

The song, 'We Don't Wanna Put In' sounds remarkably similar to "We Don't Want Putin".

Under Eurovision rules overt political content is banned, but if the lyrics are allowed the song will be performed at the show's final in Moscow.

Russia and Georgia went to war last year over the region of South Ossetia and relations between the two countries have been tense for several years.
