Conchita was received today by thousands of persons in the airport of Wien.
The austrian president Heinz Fischer congratulates Conchita and said "it's not only a victory for Austria, it is a victory for tolerance in Europe". All the political parties follow the example of the president, even by the FPÖ - extreme right party .
The last time Austria won the contest was in 1966.
The same happiness was not share by some politicians in Russia like Vladimir Jirinovski, from the liberal democratic party that wrote something like "50 years ago the soviet army ocupied Austria, they should have stayed there".
Is this the beggining of a political scene in Europe?
