    Russian President Vladimir Putin staged an impromptu grand piano performance as he was waiting for a meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

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

    While waiting for his Chinese counterpart at the villa, Putin spotted a grand piano and, apparently captivated by the sight of it, sat down and performed a couple of songs.

    The Russian leader played two songs, Moscow Windows and The City on the Free Neva River – the unofficial anthems of Moscow and St. Petersburg respectively.
