Listen: Vladimir Putin and Elton John hoax call.

Sir Elton can be heard on the recording speaking on the phone with two men purporting to be the Russian President and his press secretary Dmitry Peskov. Television show hosts Vladimir Krasnov and Alexei Stolyarov said they got the idea to prank the Rocket Man singer after Sir Elton told the BBC over the weekend that after a meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko he looked forward to a meeting with Mr Putin. During the call Elton agreed to attend a gay pride parade in Moscow and spoke of his concern about violence in Russia towards members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Mr Krasnov told Russian tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda on Wednesday: “Alexei has great English, so he introduced himself as Dmitry Peskov (Mr Putin’s spokesman) and translated our conversation.

It would be fantastic, and it would be a dream come true.” Afterwards he took to Instagram to post a picture of Putin and wrote: “Thank-you to President Vladimir Putin for reaching out and speaking via telephone with me today. I look to forward to meeting with you face-to-face to discuss LGBT equality in Russia. @president_vladimir_putin @ejaf #lgbt #lgbtrights #ShareTheLove He is heard saying: “I’m a musician and a philanthropic person and a humanitarian. I’m not a politician, but I would love to sit down with the president and discuss things face to face because I think we can solve many issues together.” Verified email addresses: All users on Independent Media news sites are now required to have a verified email address before being allowed to comment on articles.
