Former Russian president Vladimir Putin has reportedly recruited Boyz II Men to perform a live show in Moscow in a bid to get frisky couples to have more sex, in an attempt to boost the country's population.
According to Radar Online, the 60 year old politician believes that the R & B group's sensual sound is enough to make their many Russian female fans go weak at the knees and have extra sex whilst listening to the band's lovey dovey tracks.
This is all apparently part of Putin's continuing PR campaign in a bid to persuade women to have more children with the population of Russia currently stalling.
And it looks like he definitely has the timing right, with the concert set to take place on Valentines Day.
“The stylish trio of Boyz II Men, the most successful R&B group of all time, is coming to Moscow on February 6. The group will perform a selection of their classic and new romantic ballads, hopefully giving Russian men some inspiration ahead of St. Valentine’s Day,” a report confirmed in the Moscow Times.

While band members Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman and Nathan Morris told the newspaper: “Russian audiences have always shown us a lot of love. It’s amazing for us to see fans across the world who know every lyric to our songs. We really appreciate all the support they have given us over the years.”
In December, Putin stated his intentions in leading Russia to become more powerful on the world stage during a state of the nation address.
“In order for Russia to be a strong and sovereign country, there must be more of us and we must be better in morality, in our competences, our work and our creativity,” Putin demanded.
