THREE OF THE MOST MEMORABLE AND TOUCHING RUSSIAN SONG FLASHMOBS!
A NEW SERIES OF POSTS! It’ll run between March and May 2019 on FuturisTrendcast, between the Crimea Re-unification anniversary and Victory Day. In this series I’ll post various remarkable and uplifting Russian photos, videos, clips, songs and flashmobs. Many may be surprising and truly remarkable. All – worthy of attention.
I want it to be uplifting, hopeful and positive. We already have several posts in this category:
REMEMBER THAT LEGENDARY RUSSIAN SONG FLASHMOB?..
Two years ago a giant flashmob spread like fire across borders. It started in Zaporozhie, Ukraine, where local students performed an old Soviet/Russian song ‘My Native Street’ from the legendary 1950s blockbuster film, Spring on Beyond-the-River Street (aka, Spring on River Street).
This was Zaporozhie flashmob that started it all:
Almost immediately, despite prosecution of the Kiev government and ukro-nazis, the flashmob spread to Odessa, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk and Kiev. The famous Russian/Soviet songs were performed in train stations and they began appearing on the Internet. Then Moscow decided to send a return hello to Ukraine by performing two Ukrainian songs at the Kiev Train Station.
It became known as the Train Station Flashmob, or the Russian Song Flashmob, or the Friendship Flashmob.
Then besieged by Kiev, Donbass joined in with some very powerful performances that spoke of courage, hope and memory no one can take away.
Very powerful: Donetsk flashmob – theme song from the legendary Soviet film ‘Officers’:
Wherever there were no train stations, people performed in bus terminals. In the small village of Snezhnoe, Donbass, people gathered at such small bus station to perform the legendary Soviet song, ‘On the Unnamed Altitude.’ The old Soviet song narrates the heroic act by a company of the Red Army soldiers during WWII. They defended the ‘unnamed altitude’ until only three of them were left.
Very touching! If you look carefully at the Snezhnoe flashmob video, you’ll see in the beginning that legendary ‘Unnamed Altitude’, a hill located in Donbass. It shows a huge memorial park with monuments and people laying flowers to commemorate the heroism of their ancestors. Then the scene changes to show how Kiev army destroys that hill, complete with monuments. It was during Kiev junta attacks between 2014 and 2016, and more heroes died defending that same altitude. The sight of the new destruction is striking, as if Nazis suddenly were back, and not as foreign invaders but as those the Donbass people once called their neighbors, brothers and sisters.
I think this was one of the most memorable and powerful performances of the entire flashmob. Note the guy and a woman in the video wiping tears as they listen! For these people the wounds are too fresh, too real, too close…
Flashmob spread all over the former USSR and throughout the world. Within less than one year there were thousands of Russian song flashmobs. No one had done the statistics, but this completely grassroots spontaneous phenomenon must have united tens or even hundreds of thousands in dozens of countries.
One such remarkable flashmob in Vienna – in my next post. And the cool, joyful Moscow flashmob – also to follow! Plus, we’ll have a wonderful Siberian flashmob – don’t miss that one! All coming in the next few weeks!
Meantime, those who had the gift of the gab began writing poetry about this unique global flashmob. This excellent poem was written as soon as the flashmob gained traction two years ago. It became viral in its own right. Here it is in Russian – read translation below:
Назло изолгавшейся прессе – протестный рождается шквал!!!
Запели «Смуглянку» в Одессе – её подхватил весь вокзал.
И в Харькове, и в Запорожье – то «Клён» запоют, то «Весну»…
Есть то, что всего нам дороже: мы помним большую страну!
Да! Ту дорогую, святую, что мир от фашизма спасла.
И пусть русофобы лютуют, а песня надежду зажгла! …
Давайте, родные, давайте!!! Споём на Днепре! На Неве!
И «хлопцi, коней розпрягайте!» – в ответ зазвенело в Москве!
На Киевском старом вокзале, под русский лихой перепляс –
в столице «Марусю» играли, души исполняя приказ. …
Как будто опять партизаны вдруг вышли из тёмных лесов…
Не верим мы в эти Майданы, а верим в добро и любовь!
Ну что, СБУ?!! Эту песню нельзя ни поймать, ни убить.
То вера святая воскресла! Маэстро сказал: «Будем жить!!!»
Ведь мы – от рожденья артисты, а песня – народный дебют:
славянские «сепаратисты», поют «колорады», поют!!!
Поют и поют, хоть ты тресни!.. А кто запретит? – да никто!
Тут всё – и прозрачно, и честно: вот – люди, вот – песня. И что?!
ВСЕМ слышно?!! Мы рядом. Мы вместе. МЫ – дети великих отцов.
И наша бессмертная песня – примета борцов и творцов!
AND A GREAT POETIC TRANSLATION OF THE ABOVE VERSE BY OUR NEMO:
Dear all! This is my modest attempt at a poetic translation of the poem that Lada posted in this article. The last verse is not quite to my liking in that I cannot quite rhyme it in English, thus losing some of the power that it had in Russian.
The lying media spiting, a wall of protest has sprung!!!
“Smugljanka” was heard in Odessa – the whole of the station it sung.
In Kharkov and Zaporozhje they’d sing of “Maple” and “Spring”.
What for all of us dear – rememb’ring great country we lived in.
Yes! The one and the holy that saved from the Fascism the World.
Let russophobes go a’brutal, the song has given us hope..!
Come, brothers, come sing on Dnieper and sing on the Neva bank!
While in Moscow “horses a’stradling” was heard in Ukrainian back!
At the old “Kiev” train station, a lively Rus dance was seen –
In capital they played “Marusja”, harkening to the soul’s scream.
As if partisans emerging, from the darkened woods of the war…
We don’t believe in Maidans, we are for goodness and love!
Now what, SBU!?? This song, can neither be caught nor killed.
The holy faith has returned! Maestro told us – “We’ll live!!!”
We all, from our births, are performers, and song is a people’s début:
The Slavic “separatists” are singing, “colorados” they calls for naught!!!
They sing and they sing, and what will you! Who can prohibit it? None!
All transparent here, and honest – the people, the song. It’s done.
D’you ALL hear, do you!? We are close. We are united. WE are children of great forefathers.
And our song immortal is the hallmark of creators and fighters!

Two years after Maidan and February 22, 2014 Coup
Nearly two years after Crimea seceded and re-joined Russia
Soon to be two years after Donetsk & Lugansk referendums resulting in DNR/LNR & civil war
One year after Minsk peace agreements
Replaced by Syria and the Middle East, Ukraine has been out of headlines. But the new documentaries are coming out in Europe, beginning to reveal the truth of what really went on on Kiev Maidan. The picture painted in the new documentaries is stark different from the pretty lie the Kiev junta, assisted by its US bosses, tried to present for two years. Europe isn’t buying the Kiev propaganda any more, and that’s a big step forward. I have been talking about the real truth in connection with Ukraine, Kiev junta, ukro-nazis and Ukraine fascist battalions since the beginning of 2014. I am glad that the mainstream is starting to catch up.
While the world is watching Syria and US presidential debates, breaking news from Ukraine are as volatile as they were two years ago. Are ukro-nazis ready to execute Coup 2.0 to coincide with the second anniversary of Maidan? Should it happen, what to expect next?
After power, water and food blockade of Crimea last year, Ukraine has now blockaded Russian cargo truck transit to the EU. How far will these people go in their desire to hurt Russia, and who is paying them?
Let’s take a look back at how it all began and what global manipulations were behind the coup; let’s review the true, forbidden history of Ukraine and its distortions; let’s look back at my original 2014 predictions and how they are coming along! We’ll assess what has been achieved in the two years after Maidan and where it’s all heading for Ukraine, Russia, EU, US, and the world in general. Finally, let’s hear my new and updated predictions!

ALL EARTH SHIFT REPORTS
7 Million People and 30% of GDP Say Goodbye to Ukraine! People of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics have spoken, and the result of the referendum was predictable. See my post with vote results and live interviews.
The events on the territory so far called Ukraine are developing with such speed that I can’t post articles fast enough. I prepared this article last week, but due to the referendum, I postponed it. By the time I was ready to publish, some of the information was already a thing of the past. Essentially, since Donetsk and Lugansk voted to secede, their territory is no longer a part of Ukraine. Therefore, if anywhere in my post I still refer to it as part of Ukraine, do keep in mind the new realities.
This article is in conjunction with my previous: Is There Israel and Mossad Involvement in Ukraine? I suggest you read it as well to form a full picture.
As I said in the last post, It has been officially announced that the highly experienced Israeli battalion Aliya, consisting of former Soviet/Russian citizens, is coming to help the people of the Donetsk Republic and Odessa to fight against the Kiev junta. Similar announcements have been made by some other forces elsewhere, as well. I’ll leave it up to these countries and organizations to declare who and what they are sending to help the people of the south-east, as perhaps some of them may want to remain anonymous for the time being. Presently, the Kiev nazis are hunting down anyone they consider suspicious, so it’s a dangerous task by any measure. Read the rest of this entry
Just a few days ago I said the following in reply to the readers’ comments: “There may be a serious revolution starting in Donbass soon. The locals have announced that if the referendum is not scheduled in a few days, they will initiate it.” “Ukrainian election in May won’t work out as they plan and hope – my prediction.” “This is only the beginning. Just wait till the end of May – June. At that point and later in the year, the whole situation will start backfiring.”
By the time I returned from a weekend trip on Sunday and turned on my computer, my predictions already started materializing. Read the rest of this entry
