"We Don't Wanna Put In" by Stefan & 3G has been considered as disappointing by Russian authorities, against their country, following the conflicts in South Ossetia.
Answering to Russia, the organisers of Eurovision Song Contest 2009 asked the Georgian TV channel to change the lyrics. Refusing this order, Stefan & 3D have been disqualified & won't go to the contest, in Moscow on May 16.
Although they aren't qualified anymore, encouraged by fans & media, Stefan & 3G will release their single on May 18.

Also, about the Song Contest, many Russian hotels have put their prices up ! 20 to 30% from May 10 to 16, according to the newspaper "Kommersant". "This year, the Eurovision Song Contest may be a way for Moscow's hotels to earn more money" the journalist said. "The occupied rooms have gone back to 52%, losing 14 points."
The same phenomenon happened during the football Champions League in 2008, but the Antimonopol Federal Service of Russia didn't interfere. This time, according to the Russian newspaper, there should have been an illegal plan between hotel owners, veryfing the situation.
