最近互联网上出现了一首调侃俄罗斯总理普京的歌曲，称他“很公正”，网民对他的喜爱之情显而易见。这首俄罗斯歌曲借用了上世纪70年代一首非常流行的捷克歌曲Jozin z Bazin的旋律，将普京近期的强力举措写入歌词，使得普京在网上获得无数粉丝的支持。普京自2008年离开总统宝座以后就一直担任俄罗斯总理，官方媒体将其描述为应对金融危机的关键人物。
A spoof song which 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.
A spoof song
which 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, who stepped down president in 2008 to become prime minister, 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 the town of 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," the Russian lyrics say as a bearded man in a suit gyrates. "Putin, Putin is quick to do justice. Putin, Putin is our Prime Minister."
The Russian song, set to a popular 1970s Czech tune Jozin z Bazin, has had tens of thousands of clicks on the www.youtube.com website in recent days.
Putin is Russia's most popular politician and his influence has fuelled speculation that he could seek to return to the Kremlin in the future.
The spoof song says an election is just around the corner and that the result will be clear to everyone. But the song ends by saying the next Russian president will be the monster who gives his name to the original Czech song.
That very popular song tells the story of a village monster which ate tourists.
"Jozin z Bazin is the people's choice ... oligarchs, miners and even cops know that Jozin z Bazin will be our new president."
