Putin sings a new song as half-time is called


Putin: praised in song as someone
who's full of strength and won't run
away from problems

"My boyfriend had a fight/and got into a pretty mess/He got drunk and doped himself/with some drugs/He got me to the point/that I banished him from my side/Now I want/someone like Putin."

A pop song appeared out of the blue in Russia at the end of August about a teenage girl who gets fed up with her boyfriend and dumps him. Now she is looking for someone else, someone like Russian president Vladimir Putin, someone - so the song assures us - who is full of strength, doesn't drink, doesn't offend and who won't run away.

The strange thing about the song - which enjoyed extensive exposure on Russia's top radio programmes - was that it didn't seem to have a known band behind it.
