Subject: RE: BS: Russian anthem restored
Well, actually it's globaliZation, not globaliSation, truth to tell. (Kidding.)

I've always preferred the old Red Army Marching Song (Polyushko, polye-dy) over any of the Soviet post-Internationale anthems. Does the Russian army still use it, or did it go the way of all things red?

One of the lines in the Russian version of "Joy to the World" (Raduysya mir, gospod' gryadyot) goes "Tsarya Tsaryey" which I'm pretty sure is the functional equivalent of "King of kings", not "Czar of czars".
