Putin sits down at piano in China, plays Soviet songs

Vladimir Putin plays Soviet songs during China visit

Before his meeting with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, it was rare sight to see the Russian President Vladimir Putin sitting down to play the piano on Sunday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday that Moscow was opposed to any new countries acquiring nuclear weapons, but that the world should talk to North Korea rather than threaten it.

The attack exploited known vulnerabilities in older Microsoft computer operating systems, and Putin added: "As for the source of these threats, Microsoft's leadership stated this directly, they said the source of the virus was the special services of the United States".

The piano performance was no different, with many on social media tweeting about the video and suggesting someone tune the piano.

Putin said Russian Federation had a year ago sought an agreement with the previous U.S, administration on cooperation in the field of cyber security, but that Washington had dragged its feet and no deal was concluded.

Putin, speaking in Beijing, said nuclear tests of the type that Pyongyang had been carrying out in recent weeks were unacceptable, but that a peaceful solution to rising tensions on the Korean peninsula was needed. "We have been holding such meetings regularly since 2013 to assess interim results of the large-scale army and navy reboot program, to identify problems in its implementation and, naturally, to outline measures to accomplish our tasks in due time", Putin said, adding that now work is being done to implement the state arms program for 2011-2020.

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. I can not say I played, I was just pressing the keys with two or three fingers.

But he has also displayed his artistic side, singing Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill" in English at a charity event in 2010. "But they chose to post it".

"As for the source of these attacks, I think that the Microsoft administration has made everything clear on the subject".

Both songs are from the late 1950s, when Mr. Putin, 64, was a child and the Soviet Union was emerging from the shadow of Stalin, who died in 1953.
