I watched some of the closing of the Olympics last night, and the Russians are the next hosts for the winter games. As part of handing the torch to the Russians, the Russians sang their national anthem. I heard the same song from the 'Hunt for Red October', the old communist USSR anthem.
Apparently when the USSR fell, they got rid of the old anthem, then sometime recently they decided to bring it back, except they changed a few words.
This is coming from the country that allowed Putin to CREATE a new position in the government, Prime Minister, in order for him to stay in charge.
The same country where journalists who criticize the Government conveniently get shot to death on their way home from the grocery store.
They are now singing the old Communist anthem.
Am I crazy or is there a trend?
