The video for the song “To the Limit”, the text of which was written by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Maria Zakharova, gained 18 million views. Zakharova herself announced this in her Telegram channel.
The composer of the song was Maxim Fadeev, who performed this song together with the singer Valeria. The video was published on YouTube on April 20, 2020.
“What’s interesting: nobody promoted this track on purpose. No technological or other incentive. They just listen and watch him,” Zakharova wrote.
Earlier, Zakharova said that two more songs are planned for release, for which she wrote the lyrics. The release of one of them, according to a Foreign Ministry spokesman, had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The second song will be performed by “one of our most famous singers”. Zakharova added that she sent her poems to this performer and two days later received a finished song in response. Zakharova did not disclose the name of this singer.
