Hat Tip: Sovok of the Week.
Just for fun, a song in Russian which sort of mirrors the attitude shown in “Dear Mr. Gorbachev”.

Evgeny, are you their manager or something?

No, I’m not their manager or anything.
By the way, have I possibly become annoying? Your blog is absolutely wonderful, I wouldn’t like to be a hindrance.

You are not a hindrance. You just keep leaving posts about that band. So long as you are not spamming, you are encouraged to stay! 🙂

I understand your concern. But, simply, that song may provide some related answers. “We are alive till we keep going” is the key idea, imho. No matter how the situation changed, you need to move on. “I and you are our spring. Our Homeland is USSR.” This sets the ideal — a personal ideal of something positive what was in the Soviet Union, ‘our spring’. “The way to the Homeland is a war. Each step is a won battle.” The emphasis, a central point.

“Dear Mr. Gorbachev” is very funny – but Evgeny’s band (and that video) rocks! I think it’s the welding masks that put them over the top …
