Yes, you read that headline right, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin has recruited Boyz II Men to perform live in Moscow in his continuing efforts to boost population numbers in Russia.

NME reports that the 90s R&B group are being flown in to perform ahead of Valentine's Day to 'inspire' the men of Moscow on February 6th. Apparently Putin has repeatedly spoken about his desire to see the population of Russia increase, stating that three children per household is the figure to aim for, with the goal making a 'more powerful Russia'. The idea is slightly terrifying.
