London, May 9 (ANI): Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin took a step further into the hearts of people after he mixed his vocals with those of a schoolgirl to sing a patriotic love duet.

The popular leader came to the rescue of the student at a girl’s boarding school in Moscow after she stumbled while performing a famous wartime song, The Dugout.

“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,” the Telegraph quoted him as singing.

The 56-year-old further encouraged other pupils and war veterans present in the room to commemorate Victory Day with a louder singing.

The prime minister in an out-of-character move even drew a smiley face on a whiteboard at one point during the celebrations. (ANI)
