Russian cyber criminals are plotting to sabotage tomorrow’s Eurovision Song Contest to stop red-hot favourites Ukraine from grabbing the glory.

Fears were rising that pro-Putin hacker gang Killnet would try to paralyse the online voting servers ahead of anticipated support for folk-rap band Kalush Orchestra.

In a sneering message on Telegram emblazoned with a Eurovision logo, it wrote: «You can’t vote online». «Perhaps our DDOS attack is to blame for everything», The Sun reports.
