National Anthem of Russia
« on: January 26, 2009, 08:50:36 PM »
After the break up of the USSR in 1991 a new anthem was used "The Patriotic Song" by Glinka.
 At first it had no words and the Olympic champions sat silently on the podium as it played...  Then in 2000 the Duma (congress) voted to approve this adaptation of the anthem of the Soviet Union of 1944, with music originally composed by Alexander Alexandrov and new lyrics by Sergey Vladimirovich Mikhalkov.

Russian
Россия священная наша держава,
Россия любимая наша страна.
Могучая воля, великая слава
Твоё достоянье на все времена!

Припев:
Славься, Отечество наше свободное,
Братских народов союз вековой,
Предками данная мудрость народная!
Славься, страна! Мы гордимся тобой!
От южных морей до полярного края
Раскинулись наши леса и поля.
Одна ты на свете! Одна ты такая
Хранимая Богом родная земля!

Припев
Широкий простор для мечты и для жизни
Грядущие нам открывают года.
Нам силу даёт наша верность Отчизне.
Так было, так есть и так будет всегда!

Припев

Pripev:
Slavsya, Otechestvo nashe svobodnoye,
Bratskikh narodov soyuz vekovoy,
Predkami dannaya mudrost narodnaya!
Slavsya, strana! My gordimsya toboy!
Ot yuzhnykh morey do polyarnogo kraya
Raskinulis nashi lesa i polya.
Odna ty na svete! Odna ty takaya
Khranimaya Bogom rodnaya zemlya!

Pripev
Shirokiy prostor dlya mechty i dlya zhizni.
Gryadushchiye nam otkryvayut goda.
Nam silu dayot nasha vernost Otchizne.
Tak bylo, tak yest i tak budet vsegda!

Pripev
English (unofficial) translation
Russia our sacred stronghold,
Russia our beloved country.
A mighty will, a great glory
Your heritage for all time!

Chorus:
Be glorious, our free Fatherland,
Ancient union of brotherly nations,
Ancestor-given wisdom of the people!
Be glorious, country! We take pride in you!
From the southern seas to the polar region
Spread our forests and our fields.
You are the only one in the world! You are the only one of a kind
Native land protected by God!

Chorus
A broad expanse for dreams and for lives
Is opened to us by the coming years.
Our devotion to our Fatherland gives us strength.
So it was, so it is, and so it will always be!

Chorus
