A Conversation for The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics

The National Anthem

Post 1


Went to work this morning with, for some reason, the theme of the Russian National anthem as an ear-worm in my head; reflecting that Russia kept the tune but only slightly changed the lyrics, so that bits like "glorious Soviet motherland" now become something like "great Russian motherland", and "where Great Lenin did lead" is now "where great forefathers led" or something (as if that's a placeholder for replacing "Lenin" with "Putin", or am I being cynical?)
