Spotlight : Russian National Anthem

The Russian National Anthem now called the "State Anthem of the Russian Federation" was composed by Alexander Alexandrov and dates back to the period of Joseph Stalin in 1944 . After the Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991 the anthem was abandoned . In the year 2000 , Putin established a new anthem using the same music but with different lyrics written by the same author - poet Sergey Mikhalkov.

Where the old anthem praised the atheist Communist Party and Stalin, the new anthem celebrates Russia as a country protected by God. Outside of Amhrán na bhFiann , it is one of my favourite anthems .

Below : Putin sings Russian National Anthem . 

  

English Translation

Russia our sacred State
Russia our beloved country
A mighty will, a great glory
Is your legacy for all time!
 
Chorus:
Be glorious, our free Homeland,
Fraternal peoples, a union for the ages,
Common wisdom handed down by our forbears
Be glorious, our country! We pride ourselves in you.

From the southern seas to the arctic circle
our forests and fields spread before you
You are unique in the world, you are without compare
The land of my birth protected by God.
 Chorus...
 
Open spaces for dreams and for living
Are opened for us by the coming years
Our strength is given to us by faith in our Homeland
Thus it was, so it is and always will be!
 Chorus..
