Odessa Church Choir Performs the Legendary Den Pobedi (Victory Day)! Happy #May9 #VICTORY75! #ImmortalRegimentOnline #БессмертныйПолкОнлайн
ALL DAY TODAY & TOMORROW!
VIRTUAL #VICTORY75 & #ImmortalRegimentOnline MARATHON
Whatever else is happening in the world, today I post only the positive & uplifting!
MORE COMING IN THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS, INCLUDING THE SERIOUS STUFF!
Touching performance by the choir of the Odessa Russian Orthodox (Russkaya Pravoslaovnaya) congregation and Maxim Tkachuk, the 12-year-old orphan singer from western Ukraine I told you about in previous post (Tajikistan Children’s Flashmob Performing Russian WWII Song Smuglyanka Goes Viral!). The compassionate Odessa people offered support to Maxim and his caregivers, and helped them resettle in Odessa, where they will be more protected against prosecution.
The singing by the choir is mixed with the Red Army singing Den Pobedi in the background and is accompanied by actual 1941-45 footage of WWII and victory day chronicles from Moscow and other Russian towns. I shared some of this historic footage in previous big report: 3 Unbelievable Stories & Amazing Historic WWII Videos!
They also show last year’s Victory Day parade in Kiev, which I am ambivalent about (the symbolism there is questionable at best, but perhaps they have to show that, being in Ukraine and all). Watch – Den Pobedi by the Odessa Pravoslavny choir. The actual choir singing starts at 1:16:
