27 August 2017. Bright Moments in the Russian Diaspora… Sergei Zharov… He Kept the Flame Alive in a Dark Time

******

________________________

The Don Cossack Chorus needs no introduction from me. It helped to keep the flame of Russian culture alive here in the diaspora. We preserved our culture here due to the presence of such people as S A Zharov and Metropolitans Leonty Turkevich and Anastasy Gribanovsky. There are those who’ve succumbed to the siren-song of the West… they sold out for transitory material gain… however, many of us haven’t, and the exemplary example of our forebears strengthened our resolve to keep to the proven path of our ancestors.

Вечная память to all of our fathers and mothers… we’d be nothing without them…

In Russia, the state still supports the arts, unlike the USA, where Republican filth cut the funds for such. The Russian state always found money to support the arts, even in the Nasty 90s… they’re not nekulturnye greedsters like American Republicans. By the way, this ensemble is from the predominantly-Muslim Republic of Tatarstan. Most of its musicians and its dirigent are Muslims. Remember this group when you hear Republican hatred about Muslims from the usual cast of suspects. Not only are they cheap bastards, they’ll full of racial hatred, too…
