A legislator’s job is to write and pass a country’s laws. He or she should be dispassionate and unsentimental, without flourish or melodrama. Yet there are times when the same politician may turn into a lyrical singer of romances and love songs. In Russian, this phenomenon is called The Club of Singing Politicians and Businessmen. On March 4, the club gathered to hear its female members serenade their male counterparts. Journalists were invited to have a chance to see the famous personae in their unofficial capacity and to be reminded of the ancient adage: ars longa, politica brevis.
