Do you want to see what it looks like when Russians get really, really, really pissed? It looks like this: Russians come in and win! And then they sing their national anthem despite all the silly bans by IOC and WADA! Russian anthem by Team Russia at 3:11 :
They sang it later again in the team bus.
This video at 4:10 onward: Team Russia sings anthem after winning gold in PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics, followed by the bus performance, followed by the locker room celebration:
This is why hockey is one of the few team sports calibrating at 200 – COURAGE (many team sports, such as football/soccer, baseball, basketball and American football calibrate below 200).
You ask what’s so special about singing Russian national anthem by the winning team? In a highly and openly politicized move, it is banned by IOC, together with the Russian flag. Moreover, IOC even stiffed Russian athletes for the earlier promised participation in the closing ceremony with the Russian flag and in Russian colors.
And what did I predict? Exactly that: IOC would stiff Russia for the closing ceremony with the Russian flag… And here it is!
Read my article with Olympics 2018 predictions Dirty Geopolitics of Olympics and Globalism – Will Russia Say NO and Start Alternative Games?
So… after all that noise and accusations, after all the threats and humiliation attempts, Russians clenched TWO most prestigious Winter Olympics medals. Women’s figure skating gold (plus silver, of course), and for encore, the highest valued of all — hockey gold.
Quick karma for Canada and US? Hockey is Canada’s most popular sport, but it was in fact Canada who was the biggest instigator (together with US and UK) of the 200% politically motivated Russian doping scandal. McLaren, the author of the infamous ‘independent’ WADA report, lives in Canada; the bipolar ex-RUSADA chief and main ‘witness’ against Russia has fled to and settled in Canada.
Enter the Winter Olympics’ most prestigious men’s hockey competition: US was booted out after losing to Russia 0:4 in quarter finals, and Canada, who won gold 3 times in the last 4 Olympics, including Russian Sochi Olympics 2014, got a pretty humiliating bronze, after losing to the upstart Germany.
Meanwhile Russia last won Olympic hockey gold in 1992, just after the collapse of the USSR, when the team also competed without anthem and flag. That was Russia’s 8th hockey gold. Russia now ties with Canada for 9 Olympic men’s hockey golds.
Remember the headline from one US publication I quoted in previous post: ‘Putin’s Russia Just Can’t Seem To Win Olympic Hockey Gold.‘
Talk about eating your words!
The Winter Olympics 2018 ended with 2 spectacular and most prestigious wins by Team Russia — and with the Russian anthem, to boot.
As we’ve established, you can try to ban Russia, but you can’t ban Russians!
There are some indications that Russians will be starting the alternative games soon — to challenge, and later to replace IOC. And it’s about time!
Russian Anthem — one more time! This time, properly!
Putin’s New Year 2018 Address, The chime of the Kremlin Kuranti, followed by anthem:
With lyrics (Rus – Eng):
Russian FM Lavrov: Russian Olympic ban is part of an unfair competition, since US cannot win honestly any more.
Lavrov is echoing what I’ve been saying all along: US is fighting the inevitable — the Great Earth Shift and Russia The Great Balancer, rebalancing the world away from the West. The Olympic ban is one of the ongoing attempts to slow down and sabotage Russia’s Earth Shifting and rebalancing work.
But in the end, it’ll never work.

This is post 2 in my Russian / Soviet Music for Posterity series. This entire month I’m dedicating to two major events:
- The Mystery of the Russian Revolution (Centennial of the Russian 1917 Revolution)
- 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.
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

Just a very beautiful comment from our supporter. And my reply. Plus a nice surprise below: Americans sing Russian Anthem in NYC and NJ to honor the victims of the Tu-154 tragedy.
timtolzmann Lada, are you okay? I hope you and your husband are well, and that all is well for you. Thank you for all you have done for us. I recently read ESR15. Mr. Putin could put the United States nuclear powered electric lights out. I am a United States person. I hope we will all wake up soon from our dream world. I am sorry for the actions internally and externally of my press and government. At least those of the president and the political parties. Your blog is very beautiful and lovely. It is so nurturing. Blessings to you and yours, and to our world.
Thank you for asking, Tim, and thanks for the wonderful words. I’ve been busy traveling. In NYC now; among other things, visiting Chinatown before the Chinese New Year for some supplies for the upcoming Year of the Fire Rooster. Very disappointing: Chinatown really lost a lot of authenticity since I was there last.
I’ll share with you all some highlights soon. Also stay tuned for the brand new Prosperity Rituals for the Chinese New Year and beyond.
In addition, I had the chance to observe the state of the New York City infrastructure vs. Russian and Chinese infrastructure. Very educational. Thinking about doing a talk about it on my YT channel, but afraid my many dear American followers won’t be happy about the comparisons.
Be back online very soon.
Blessings right back to all my wonderful readers, listeners and supporters!
Russian Anthem on Hudson: some faith in Americans restored?
First, a little pre-history:
Global Russian song flash mob
The Russian song flash mob that began in Zaporozhie, Kharkov, Odessa and Moscow in November 2016, since then spread all over the world. By the beginning of January 2017 it saw hundreds of surprising, fresh, talented and touching grassroots performances in Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Pridnestrovie, DLPR, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Australia, Spain, The Netherlands, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Czechia, Slovakia, Egypt, Syria and other countries. From capitals to small villages, in airports, bus and train stations, or simply in the great outdoors, the flash mob shows no signs of abating.
This is my original post about the very first Russian song flash mobs: Beautiful Russian-Soviet Song Flash Mobs Unite Russians and Ukrainians Against Kiev Junta Hatred
Ever since, there were many more – some pretty amazing.
In Ukraine, under the ukro-nazi regime, participating in the Russian song flash mob is extremely dangerous. There were a number of instances when flash mob participants were threatened and attacked; in at least one instance they endured grave physical assault. Those brave people still came out and sang, despite risks. In some countries Russians and people from different countries beautifully sang together, in multiple languages. This was the case in Germany, Australia, Italy, Czechia, Slovakia, Moldova, Latvia, etc. Some of the most touching flash mobs took place in Donetsk – DPR and Lugansk – LPR, where people first-hand witnessed death and destruction, yet found the strength to sing. Some of the most beautiful flash mobs were performed in the fairytale St. Petersburg, and some of the coolest, Moldova and Pridnestrovie.
Many countries had multiple Russian song flash mobs; Canada alone as of now had at least four. The list of countries that joined the Russian flash mob continues growing. But from that list, two are conspicuously missing: USA and UK.
The Russian population in both countries is quite substantial, and perhaps – I thought – it is a testament to the quality of said population in these two countries.
Why are there Russophobic ‘Russians’ in the US?
I was asked more than once by my readers who live in the UK or US why the ‘Russians’ they meet are Russophobic. Here is your answer: unfortunately, for years there has been an artificial selection at work, as a result of which a very specific kind of Russians were welcomed and encouraged to settle in the US and UK: those who hate Russia. Certainly, not everyone is like that, and there are exceptions, but chances are you will see a disproportionate number of those who push anti-Russian and anti-Putin agenda. This is especially true for the so-called ‘Russian’ TV and media in the US, as well as any sort of social and political organizations. These organizations receive grants from the US government, as well as Soros, various US NGOs and American Zionist organizations, such as Chabad (I wrote about Chabad and its global role in ESR6: Ukraine New Khazarian Khaganate). Therefore, they are beholden to their masters and agendas those masters push.
It really bears to mention that the situation is exactly the same with Chinese media and organizations in the US. Many Chinese-Americans boycott the Chinese-American TV for being China-phobic, watching only mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan TV.
In other words, due to their sanctified anti-Russian (and anti-other-countries) agenda, the US/UK usually favor, breed and multiply a very specific type of people.
It is especially visible with those ‘Russians’ whom US elites, media and political class allow to be visible. These are the kinds of Russians, such as Gary Kasparov (who really is half-Azerbaijani and half-Jewish), who gave advice to the US to subvert Ukraine and who promised to the US that anti-Russian sanctions would result in Russia falling apart within a few short years. Of course, nothing of the sort happened.
The US (and UK too) has been stepping on this rake since Iraq: US/UK attacked Iraq in part based on self-serving advice from Saddam Hussein’s enemies who were given asylum in the US and who had personal score to settle with Saddam. The result is well-known.
Surprise: Russian Anthem on Hudson
It seemed bizarre that so many people all over the world found time, courage and enthusiasm to sing Russian songs, yet… absolute silence in the US. I was still curious when, if ever, anyone in the US – Russians, Americans, robots, Martians, anyone??… – will come out with some sort of Russian song. It never happened.
Then, just as Christmas and New Year’s began, the terrible tragedy of the Tu-154 happened, killing all on board, including 64 members of the Aleksandrov Red Army Ensemble, and the well-known humanitarian activist Liza Glinka.
- Tribute: The Unforgettable Music of the Aleksandrov Red Army Choir – RIP
- Tu-154 Catastrophe 1/2: The Light vs Shadows of the 4D Hybrid Infowar
(Incidentally, I remember that I promised my own version of the Tu-154 catastrophe: was it an accident or terrorist attack? And how it was done? I didn’t want to spoil the holidays with such sad and gruesome story. But I’ll have it soon.)
After that, just before New Year’s Obama and his handlers expelled 35 Russian diplomats and their families, giving them no time to pack and gather their belongings, properly get children out of school, terminate their leases, settle financial affairs and close bank accounts. The majority of these people had to spend New Year holiday on a plane, having been thrown out of the country together with their little children.
And suddenly, something surprising happened, something that – perhaps just a tiny bit – restored some faith in the USA and Americans. Americans (not Russians) gathered near the Russian Consulate in NYC and sang Russian Anthem to commemorate the victims of the Tu-154 catastrophe.
Here is this video. The singers from the NY Schiller Institute Choir have very nice voices and sing with their hearts. There is an American accent, but it is clear that they know what they are singing and are doing it very well. Let me also mention that the wind in Manhattan was very strong and it was freezing that day. Also notice a nice touch: the singers wear the beloved Russian symbol of victory, black and gold striped bands (Georgievskaya Lentochka). Bravo for all that!
A few days later, the same NY Schiller Institute Choir performed on the New Jersey side of Hudson River, by the Tear Drop Memorial installed on the Hudson bank, overlooking Manhattan and the former site of the New York Twin Towers. The Tear Drop monument was the post 9/11 gift from the Russian people to the American people. It was shyly tucked away on the opposite side of the river by NY and US authorities.
You can read the whole story of the monument here: The Neglected Russian Gift to the American People, Geopolitics of the Middle East and Putin
The singers were joined by the New Jersey police and firemen. This second appearance was again dedicated to the Tu-154 catastrophe and memory of the Red Army Choir. I have to say that after this my opinion of the NJ police and firemen went up significantly. Notice by the way, the ceremony is taking place during the major blizzard and snow storm we had in NY and NJ that day. It was so bad that there were deaths in some areas.
There is a multi-part video, which you can follow here: Schiller Institute sang in honor of Alexandrov Ensemble at 9/11 Tear Drop Memorial (part 1 of 3)
