Moscow calling and dancing in Donbass

by russlife


In the upper video you can see the traditional videoclip for the song ‘Moscow Calling’ by the band Gorky Park. This band is outstanding as it is the first Russian-Soviet group which became international and used to be popular in the USA for some time. I like some of their songs, including this one. You can read more about the band here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorky_Park_(band)

And I’ve got some more interesting details. Gorky Park is a popular place of entertainment in Moscow, I love being there, it’s a nice park to spend a weekend. And speaking about the name Gorky, you might be interested to know that it comes from the famous Russian writer Maxim Gorky, it’s his pseudonym meaning ‘bitter’.You can read more about him here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxim_Gorky

In the lower video you can see a defending Donbass warrior dancing with his little daughter to the song ‘Moscow calling’. They have a Donetsk Republic flag in the frame on the wall, and the little girl is wearing its symbol on her hat. I just wish Ukraine stopped aggression so this land would be in peace and I could write about dancing and singing , and not about shelling and shooting there.
