Ukraine's poignant Eurovision triumph

Celebrations are continuing in Ukraine after Crimean Tatar artist, Jamala, won this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

Her song, 1944, is about Josef Stalin's wartime deportation of the Tatar people from the Crimean peninsula and had angered Russia, which annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.
