Kiev Mayor to sing to help Ukrainian capital through financial crisisMarch 16th, 2009 - 5:56 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 16 (ANI): Kiev’’s eccentric mayor has found a rather melodious solution to help the Ukrainian capital come out of the financial crisis since the Soviet eraby singing.
Leonid Chernovetskiy has released an album of himself singing a medley of “heartbreaking 1980s love songs”.
And the mayor is so confident of his talents that he has predicted the album will rake in almost one million dollars everyday, all of which will go into the city’’s coffers.
“I sing very well. I don”t think anyone sings as well as me apart from, maybe, God,” the Telegraph quoted Chernovetskiy as saying.
However, not everybody shares his opinion, as most of Kiev’’s residents seem unimpressed by the mayor’’s Nero-like traits.
According to polls, Chernovetskiy enjoys an approval rating of just 8.2 per cent. (ANI)
