From Kalinka to Lezginka: FM spokesperson Zakharova saddles the beat of iconic Caucasus dance
The Foreign Ministry spokesperson was caught on camera dancing the Lezginka, a fast-paced, energetic dance popular in the Caucasus Mountains.
The video is from a youth forum where a professional dancer persuaded Zakharova to show off her dancing skills as the audience claps. Her male partner was actually there to teach visitors how a proper Lezginka is done.
Zakharova famously combined her diplomatic job with dancing in 2016, when she performed a Russian folk dance, Kalinka, to dignitaries in Sochi at the Russia-ASEAN summit.
