Ukrainian soldiers are singing the national anthem before going into battle:
Russian soldiers don’t sing theirs because they don’t know it. Russia has a fluid relationship with the anthem and nobody knows for sure what it’s supposed to be at the moment. It’s not filled with any historical meaning, and nobody relates to it emotionally. Neither do they know what their current flag is supposed to mean. But ask a Ukrainian what our flag means, and I promise you’ll never forget the reaction and the answer.
The nation-state is as strong as the emotional attachment people feel towards its symbols. No, it’s not rational. The best things in life never are.
P.S. I don’t know why it says there’s sensitive content. It’s only people singing. It’s sensitive because it’s touching but there’s no violence or anything like that.
