23 Soviet Hymn

Soviet Hymn

This is a Soviet hymn, recorded by all USSR pop stars right after the USSR collapsed, in 1991. They thought this music and words would be now a part a history, because just a little bit later a new hymn appeared, with another music and words, so all people of Russia thought they are now living in a democratic state, without
traces of Soviet Union. But then a few years later, after the free goverment turned to be not so free, censorship in Mass Media appeared and.... Soviet Hymn was restored. Now, in modern Russia the hymn is being sung on the music of the Soviet hymn. Welcome back to a new USSR - Russian Federation.

a hotel in moscow
39 Moscow Hotel “Russia”, Nowadays

Moscow Hotel “Russia”, Nowadays

There is a hotel right in the centre of Moscow, just a few steps from Kremlin and other administrative buildings. It’s name was “RUSSIA” once. And today the building is being destructed, brick by brick. Why don’t they use a controlled demolition? Some say just because to avoid the dust spreading all over the Moscow downtown, as it was after the demolition of WTC towers (I don’t mean here their demolition was controlled though, as some sources state). Some
people say it is a great pity, they consider this building to be a piece of Moscow history, others think it’s a right decision because the hotel architecture was awful and doesn’t fit to the centre of Moscow. Anyway they removed all the huge signs “RUSSIA” from the hotel, so nobody could capture the photos of how Russia was demolished. What a symbolism. This is how this hotel looked like before, during the Soviet era.
