Russian soldiers have penned terrifying messages onto bombs following Ukraine's Eurovision victory.
Ukraine's entry, the band Kalush Orchestra were triumphant with their song Stefania.
But the win and Kalush Orchestra's plea for additional aid to be given to the besieged city of Mariupol appears to have caused a stir in Russia.
In response, Russian journalist Yuliya Vityazeva suggested on Twitter that the final in the Pala Olympic Arena in Turin, Italy, be blasted with a missile.
She wrote, "Bomb it with a Satan missile."
Publishing an opinion piece on Moscow's AiF newspaper website, Columnist Vladimir Polupanov branded the show "boring politicised television" and "false".
He wrote that "the competition smells badly of a rotting swamp", as reported by the Mirror.
He also went on to claim that "almost none of the winners with the exception of ABBA" become "big stars".
Meanwhile, disturbing pictures have been published on Pro-Kremlin Telegram channels showing the hashtag Eurovision2022 and references to Kalush Orchestra written on bombs.
While on stage, the group’s frontman, Oleg Psiuk, said: "I ask all of you, please help Ukraine, Mariupol. Help Azovstal, right now."
Russian troops reportedly wrote in response: “Kalush, as you asked,” “help Mariupol” and “help Azovstal right now" across a bomb.
The chilling threat comes as hundreds of people remain trapped beneath the Azovstal plant, in Mariupol.
The city has seen some of the worst destruction of the war.
Kalush Orchestra seized the top spot in Eurovision following a tense night of voting which saw the UK top the chart following votes from the jury.
But ultimately the Ukrainian band scooped the top spot once the public votes came in – propelling them to the top of the list with 631 points.
Accepting the prize, the band said: "Thank you so much. Thank you for supporting Ukraine.
"This victory is for every Ukrainian!"
The band themselves were granted special permission to leave Ukraine to attend the competition in Italy on Saturday night.
One of the original members stayed behind to continue the fight and the others plan to return as soon as possible following the contest.
And Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy welcomed the victory, which was the country's third since its Eurovision debut in 2003.
"Our courage impresses the world our music conquers Europe!” Zelensky posted online.
"Next year Ukraine will host Eurovision!
"For the third time in its history. And I believe – not for the last time."
