Russia National anthem Russian & English lyrics

I took Spanish years ago in school. I don’t remember much and Spanish is a fairly easy language; Russian, not so much from what I’ve seen. This is one of those times that I am glad that I am old.
I haven’t much of a sense about how all of this business with Trump and Russia will end but I’ve seen and read enough to believe that Trump, Flynn, Manafort and even Pence are sinking in a lake of Russian quicksand that they thought they could swim in. I don’t think that any of them were unwilling. I don’t think that any of them were shoved in. Now, Putin is on the other side of that quicksand holding a rope and smiling while the Russian people are laughing at the money and power hungry fools trying to keep their heads out of the muck.
Putin rushes to Trump’s defense, laments U.S. infighting
MOSCOW — Vladimir Putin rushed Wednesday to defend President Donald Trump from criticism over sharing classified information with Moscow, issuing a strongly worded statement that was seen as reflecting the degree of the Russian leader’s frustration with the Washington infighting that has thwarted Kremlin hopes for a detente.
Mr. Putin called the dramatic charges swirling around Mr. Trump evidence of “political schizophrenia spreading in the U.S.” He offered to furnish a “record” of the Trump-diplomats meeting in the Oval Office if the White House desired it.
Do you really think Putin gives a rat’s ass about them or us? He’s in a win/win situation. If Trump continues to have the backing of the Republican Congress he will eventually see the sanctions lifted; which has been his goal from the start of this mess. If Trump goes down he gets the great satisfaction of having played the leader of the free world as a chump, a patsy, a fool! Yes, Putin is KGB and a very smart guy. He’s been playing international chess and Trump has not been even playing checkers. He’s been playing golf and I’ve heard that he’s not all that good at it.
I think a lot of this with Putin goes way back to that remark that HRC made about him being KGB and having no soul. She poked a bear with a few ego problems and a long memory. Sadly, we are now caught up in what may turn out to be the end of an America as it used to be. Maybe we deserve it, maybe not. Trump did not win the popular vote. It’s the one fact that cheers me when I see things like the Tiki torch bearing bigots that were protesting the removal of those statues of Confederate heroes while chanting “Russia is our friend”.
BTW, yesterday was a voting day here in my state. We had mayors and judges and such to pick. Hardly anyone showed up to vote. It’s embarrassing. The weather was perfect. There were no excuses other than illness or death for not voting. So, maybe we as a nation do deserve to be knocked down a peg or two. Thankfully the German and French governments seem capable of picking up the slack.
