On the eve of the Day of the Defender of the Fatherland, the children from the “Little Birch” kindergarten of the township of Krinichnaya, held a celebration. We became very good friends with this kindergarten. In December 2016, we brought the humanitarian aid, collected as a part of “Children of Russia to Children of Donbass” campaign, here.
Teachers, parents, and children congratulated the servicemen of the Donetsk People’s Republic People’s Militia and put on a performance, which included reciting poems, signing songs, playing games, and contests. The little ones sent greeting cards and their drawings for the servicemen of “Essence of Time” unit in Donbass.
In the video, you can hear the children signing (in the order of performance):
“Gallant soldiers” Music – Arkady Filippenko. Lyrics – Tatyana Volgina
“Our Fatherland is strong” Music – Arkady Filippenko. Lyrics – Tatyana Volgina
The above poems and songs have been translated by Olga Yurchenko. More of her works and some other Soviet songs in English can be found at her and her brother’s site:
