Государственный гимн СССР (State Anthem of the Soviet Union)

Sergey Mikhalkov and Gabriel El-Registan with music by Alexander Alexandrov

The National Anthem of the Soviet Union (or Hymn, Russian: Гимн Советского Союза, Gimn Sovetskogo Soyuza) replaced the Internationale as the national anthem on March 15, 1944. The lyrics were written by Sergey Mikhalkov (born 1913) in collaboration with G. El-Registan (1899-1945) and the music was composed by Alexander Alexandrov (1883-1946). It was believed that Soviet soldiers would respond more to an anthem that was dedicated only to the Soviet Union rather than to a worldwide movement.Excerpted from National Anthem of the Soviet Union on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
