The accordion STILL rules in Russian pop culture… as long as there’s kvass, accordions, Borodinsky khleb, dill pickles, kolbasa, and arbuzi… there’s always gonna be a Russia! Bayan Miks is a good example of how traditional folk culture has adapted to the modern world. Russia is returning to Soviet standards in pop culture, rejecting Western degeneracy (especially, the perverted Anglo American version). Russian people love the old Sov songs as they’re positive and upbeat, without any of the nasty and dirty nuances found in Western “popular” music. I’d say that if I had to choose between Soviet standards and Anglo American standards… there’s no contest… the Sov standards are cleaner, more morally pure, and more decent. Keep that in mind as you hear the usual cast of suspects attack the legacy of the USSR. I know where I stand… what about you?

If the USSR is coming back… let it get here, already! It’s a lot better than the rot found on Fox News and the rubbish spread by the media about Kim Kardashian…
