My Ultimate Compilation of Russian/ Soviet Official and Alternative Anthems

This is post 2 in my Russian / Soviet Music for Posterity series. This entire month I’m dedicating to two major events:

  1. The Mystery of the Russian Revolution (Centennial of the Russian 1917 Revolution)
  2. Perhaps a bit more modest, but a notable event in my book 😉 — my release of EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA, the powerful culmination of the Multidimensional Geopolitics Series.

In this post I have collected for you some very cool YouTube clips showcasing the main Russian / Soviet anthem, as well as the alternative ‘people’s anthems,’ so to speak. These are the kinds of songs that not only outlived the USSR, but also remain people’s favorites, touching millions in ways that cannot be described, despite huge changes Russia underwent in the past decades.

All of these were written in different times in the USSR. I choose the clips I personally prefer, as well as the ones containing English subs, so you can all follow the memorable lyrics. Coupled with the music, in my view, these are some of the most powerful songs ever written.

The real soul of any culture and any nation is expressed through the quality of their songs. These songs really stand out and they say a lot about the true nature and soul of Russia and the USSR.

That’s my opinion, and what’s yours? Don’t worry, it’s an open discussion, and if someone feels compelled to bash ‘those damn commies’ — as is so common for the sheeple — be my guest, although I would prefer a higher level of discussion and more intelligent comments than that.

As I’ve told you all before, it was never about communism — it was always about Russia The Great Balancer being a threat to the yang and aggressive West’s expansionism. Or as Lenin would have called it ‘Western imperialism’ — the same thing we today refer to as globalism, one world government and NWO. In other words, Lenin called it 100+ years ago.

We’ll talk some more about the TRUE role of Russia The Great Balancer and the 1917 revolution in EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA!

Below there are three songs, and several versions of each.  If you enjoy them, vote in the comment section which song and which version grabs you and why.  

ANTHEM OF RUSSIA — OFFICIAL VERSION. (Note that it is the same anthem as the USSR’s, denoting continuity, but the lyrics have been somewhat modified — by the original Soviet lyrics author, Sergey Mikhalkov.)

ANTHEM OF RUSSIA – contemporary version. Crimea, 2015 — ENG SUBS

ANTHEM OF RUSSIA — cool flashmob on Red Square

ANTHEM OF RUSSIA – rock version

ALTERNATIVE/ POPULAR RUSSIAN ANTHEM 1 — VICTORY DAY (Soviet song dedicated to the difficult victory in WWII – The Great Patriotic War. One of the most popular Soviet/Russian songs ever written, still brings tears to people’s eyes.)

VICTORY DAY — Contemporary version, by original performer Lev Leshchenko. Notice the crowd of young people singing along!

VICTORY DAY — flashmob in Novosibirsk, Siberia on May 9.

VICTORY DAY — with ENG SUBS

ALTERNATIVE/ POPULAR RUSSIAN ANTHEM 2 — SO VAST IS MY MOTHERLAND. This easily could have been the official Russian anthem, if Russia already didn’t have one of the best anthems out there.

The original  SO VAST IS MY MOTHERLAND performance, episode from the hit 1936 Soviet film Circus (Цирк), 1936. This is the story of a white American performer who arrives from the racist USA to Moscow to perform her dangerous circus act, and who falls in love with a handsome Russian, while being ashamed of having to hide from everyone her black baby… until she, to her great surprise, learns that in the USSR it’s not a problem at all.

The official performance of SO VAST IS MY MOTHERLAND, 1930s recording, ENG SUBS

SO VAST IS MY MOTHERLAND – contemporary version, The Young Russia Festival, Red Square

Muslims of Russia: Chechnya – Land of Contrasts

Islam is one of the four major global religions. Today the Muslims of the world begin celebrating the holy month of Ramadan.

I found very interesting and revealing this RT documentary about the quintessential land of contrasts, Chechnya, one of the many small autonomous republics located in Caucasus. The small Caucasus ethnic autonomies within the Russian Federation are predominantly Muslim. But Chechnya stands out even among these, having in the past experienced a devastating war, complete with foreign fundamentalist Islamist invasion. Today, it stands out for a different reason – the fast and amazing rebirth it has experienced due to the vision and organizational talent of its leader Ramzan Kadyrov, and the financial support of Vladimir Putin and Moscow.

But to me, the biggest contrast of all is the staggering difference between how Russia is able to work with and integrate its many diverse religious and cultural minorities vs. the multi-culti mess in the EU and other countries/continents.

At the very least, this documentary is educational. Check it out:
