Hughe events will take place in Putin's Russia :D .

Kind of "nostalgic" to listen to these days?

Страны небывалой свободные дети,

Сегодня мы гордую песню поём

О партии самой могучей на свете,

О самом большом человеке своём.

Славой овеяна, волею спаяна,

Крепни и здравствуй во веки веков

Партия Ленина, партия Сталина

Мудрая партия большевиков!

Strany nebyvaloy svobodniye deti,

Segodnya my gorduyu pesnyu poyom

O partii samoy moguchey na svete,

O samom bol?shom cheloveke svoyom.

Slavoy oveyana, voleyu spayana,

Krepni i zdravstvuy vo veki vekov

Partiya Lenina, partiya Stalina

Mudraya partiya bol?shevikov!

Free children of a state unprecedented,

Today we sing our proud song

About the most powerful party in the world,

About our greatest man ever.

Surrounded with glory, soldered by will,

Grow stronger and live for eternity

The party of Lenin, the party of Stalin

Wise party of Bolsheviks!

Dear Ed,

Despite the fact, that I have a really large collection of communist songs on CDs, that gem is new to me :love: .

Is there anywhere in the internet the song for download or to listen to - YouTube, etc. :unsure: ?

Wow, I wonder if Putin is planing a celebration :unsure:

Dear Vic,

at least Putin's agency NOVOSTI is doing big propaganda for the event :D .

Well, there won't be the big military parade at the red square, but I guess, there will be some fine commemorative parties around Russia ... :rolleyes:

Best regards :beer:

Thanks, is good, that you have reminded of an anniversary of October. 90 years - the big day. And as all is fast is forgotten. Has passed 23 years and all this so it is far. It seemed that it not.

I know comparatively little of Soviet awards. Was this medal awarded to surviving 1917 revolutionaires only?

Dear Ulsterman,

no, the "Order of the October Revolution" had been one of the most prestigeous decorations in the Soviet Union in the era of Brezhnev till the end of 1991:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_October_Revolution

It ranked second amongst the Soviet orders, after the "Order of Lenin". The emphasis was on socialistic or revolutionary activities and a large range of 3rd-World-Leaders received that decoration.

Usually the "Order of the October Revolution" had been the highest decoration a foreigner got get from the Soviet Union. Also for Soviet citizens that order was approbriate, when the deeds had been too important for an "Red Banner of Labour" and not enough important for an "Order of Lenin".

Best regards :beer:

:jumping:2.000 posts at the GMIC-quiz & 2.000 post from comrade Zulus :jumping:

Gentlemen,

I want to use this thread to clebrate my post #2.000 at GMIC and also to draw your attention to our quiz, which has reached today the benchmark of 2.000 posts http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?s=&showtop...st&p=218223 :D .

Both #2.000-incidents happened today at the 90th anniversary of the "Great Socialistic October Revolution". :cheers:

Last night - at 02:00 Moscow time - I had been watching Eisenstein's "October" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October:_Ten_...Shook_the_World on DVD together with a good bottle of excellent Austrian white wine (Gr?ner Veltliner from the Wachau valley of the Danube). Well, there hadn't been so many people around, who wanted to watch with me Eisenstein-movies at midnight in Vienna ... :(

Today is at 20:40 - 22:25 at the French/German-TV-channel ARTE a documentary about the October Revolution: http://dyninet.wdr.de/inetepg/ObjekteZurSe...kmark=&Pos=
