MOSCOW - A spoof song that makes fun of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's hard man image as the saviour of Russia's battered economy has been winning fans on the Internet.
Public satire of Putin is rare and state media present the former KGB spy as the main figure handling the crisis.
Putin last month publicly humiliated factory owners in Pikalyovo and forced them to reopen their plants after workers protested against unpaid wages.
"Putin, Putin goes to Pikalyovo. Putin, Putin will make it cool for us. Putin is quick to do justice," the Russian lyrics say. - Reuters
