A scandalous claim implicating Russia's most prominent politician.
An Abba tribute band says it has performed a private concert for Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
It was a private affair, with alleged conduct unbecoming a former KGB officer.
The four-member group says Mr Putin and about seven other guests, including a woman, were present at the concert, but they sat on a sofa veiled by a curtain.
"......Mr Putin was really enjoying it, shouting 'Bravo' and clapping with the others," Aileen McLaughlin, who performs as Abba's blonde Agnetha Faltskog, was quoted as saying by the Times newspaper. "He [Putin] was dancing along in his seat to Super Trouper and raised his hands in the air during Mamma Mia when we asked the audience to," she said.
Of course.......Mr Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied that the prime minister attended any such concert.
