Singing Putin saves schoolgirl

It’s the worst nightmare of every schoolchild. You are made to sing a song in front of an important visitor but nerves mean the words just don’t come. The same thing happened with Katya Kazakova, a pupil at a boarding school in Moscow.

It’s the worst nightmare of every schoolchild. You are made to sing a song in front of an important visitor but nerves mean the words just don’t come. The same thing happened with Katya Kazakova, a pupil at a boarding school in Moscow.

But luckily for Katya, Putin cast aside his tough image and rescued her by joining her in a duet of the World War II Soviet song The Dug Out.

“The fire is pulsing in a cramped stove/ The resin on the firewood is like a tear/ And in a dugout an accordion is singing/ About your smile and your eyes,” Putin sang, showing a surprisingly soft and melodious voice.
