Elementary schooler sings Putin ode at talent show

Source: Meduza

An elementary school student at a talent show recently performed a curious new song celebrating Vladimir Putin, with lyrics like “the Euro-West has gone all out, spreading lies and sowing doubt,” and “with Perestroika, came the sleaze when the Iron Curtain got the squeeze.”

Where and under what circumstances this talent show took place remain unclear. Oleg Likhachev, the author of the original Putin is so super song, published the video on his YouTube page on February 13, 2015. It currently has over 361,000 views.
