When the Red Army Choir became a Metro flashmob

Many of those who took part in this 2013 video died in the hideous Black Sea air crash on Christmas Day.

May their souls find eternal rest.

  • I guess that by now the Russians would know how we feel when they via their ‘rebels’ in the Ukraine shoot down a commercial jetliner which flies over that country and kills over 200 – many of them Australian citizens. On that plane was one South Australian family with grandfather and two children. Shattered lives through vicious military aggression.

    • All loss of life through military and political aggression is cruel and pointless, and to be deplored and mourned, whoever perpetrates it. But I think you might find, Sue, that a sense of devastating loss is still deeply embedded in the Russian psyche as a result both of WW2, or the Great Patriotic War as they call it, and the murderous policies of former rulers directed at their own people. To recognise this does not condone or excuse anything.

      • I think you totally side-stepped my point that it was Russia who was responsible for shooting down that aircraft, which is a whole world away from an accident. I’m yet to hear either an acknowledgement or an apology for those 200 plus lives.

        Nice try though.

  • I’m pretty sure this is the other Red Army Choir– the MVD ensemble, not the Alexandrov ensemble, which was the one in the crash.
