The world's finest are in Beijing this week for the Belt and Road Forum, including Russian Bond-Villain-in-Chief and man of many talents, Vladimir Putin.

Fresh off of showcasing his amateur ice hockey skills to the world last week, Putin decided to perform a little solo piano recital at a Chinese state guesthouse while waiting for a meeting with Xi Jinping.

Not one to be exactly shy about showing off at conferences hosted in Beijing, Putin played two classic Soviet songs: 'Evening Song' by Vasily Solovyov-Sedoi and 'Moscow Windows' by Tikhon Khrennikov.

Watch below (VPN off):

This isn't the first time Putin has showed off his keyboard skills in public. Quartz notes that Putin played at a Moscow theater in 2011 and a charity fundraising event in 2010.
