Vladimir Putin will not be able to meet with singer Elton John in the near future, who will give a concert in Moscow on May 30 because of his work schedule.
At the same time, a spokesman for the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, admitted that the meeting between the British singer and Vladimir Putin would take place, but later.
The fact that Elton John could meet with Putin became known at the end of March. This agreement followed the scandal - last year the famous performer was called by the prankers Vovan and Lexus, posing as Putin and his representatives. Elton John, who had previously stated that he would like to talk with the Russian leader, was happy to announce that he had arranged a meeting. It soon became clear that they made fun of the singer, but after a while, Vladimir Putin did talk to Sir Elton John by phone.
