My Army… “Our Great October is with us, the song of Red fighters as well, the first day of war and the victory salute, and the fate of our fallen fathers, you, my army, you are always on guard, you are my love and my destiny”(the song proper doesn’t begin until 0:20 of the vid). There was character amongst Reds, as well…

These things AREN’T unrelated. As Comrade Zyuganov said on Red Square and President Putin said at Valdai, Russian History is an indivisible and unified whole… we can’t remove parts of it to suit our childish and self-centred fancies. Kievan Rus is ours… Medieval Muscovy is ours… the Tsardom of Russia is ours… Imperial Russia is ours… the USSR is ours… it’s ALL ours. That’s why Comrade Zyuganov went to the exhibition at the Manezh on the Romanovs and went away moved. Remember, those who attack the Soviet legacy have agendas… most of them sold out to the West years ago (especially, one who lives in the District‘s chi-chi suburb of Takoma Park, I’d say).

It’s ALL ours… or, NONE of it is ours. I say, “I’ll take it all, the bitter with the sweet”… it’s all MY RUSSIA… and the wind is blowing “leftwards” (don’t forget, HH is friends with the Castro brothers (and here), NOT with the Bush clan)… fancy that…
