  • Vladimir Putin Xi Jinping Russia China trade deal

According to a report of the New York Times, he played two tunes: "Evening Song", by Vasily Solovyov-Sedoi, and "Moscow Windows", by Tikhon Khrennikov. "But never mind. I think I didn't let you down".

As the dust settles on the initial round of global ransomware attacks, Russian president Vladimir Putin has said the incident has "nothing to do" with Russia, instead choosing to echo the view of Microsoft in placing partial blame for the incident with United States intelligence.

During his visit to Beijing to attend the One Belt - One Way economic forum, Russian President Vladimir Putin headed to Chinese President Xi Jinping's official residence for a bilateral meeting with his Chinese counterpart.

Sputnik posted a video of Putin's piano performance on Twitter.

This isn't the first time Putin has showed off his musical skills.

"We will approach this theme seriously and systemically, without sticking out any part of our work", Putin said, adding that he meant the work of both the government and business.

The video was posted to YouTube by Sputnik, a digital news agency that is a state-funded sibling of RT and, like RT, is aimed at global audiences.

National Public Radio reported that in 2014, Putin played "Moscow Windows" on piano at a meeting with students at the Moscow Engineering and Physics Institute. In 2010, he took the stage at a charity concert with a jazz band to play and sing 'Blueberry Hills.' Not just this, but Putin is also fond of sea diving and hunting. I can not say I played, I was just pressing the keys with two or three fingers. But they made a decision to publish it.
