Now I’ve really seen everything. Russian children are standing in front of Orthodox holy icons and singing about the joys of a nuclear war that will deliver a strike on Washington. In the song, a nuclear war is something fun, cute, and homey.
In the USSR, we were afraid of a nuclear war. It was never presented as something desirable. It was never glorified. We always knew that we wouldn’t start it because that was the most evil thing to do.
Children, holy icons… and a glorification of a nuclear war. I’ve now seen it all but I’d like to unsee it.
