Russian anthem lyrics (English translation)
Russia ג€“ our sacred homeland,
Russia ג€“ our beloved country.
A mighty will, great glory ג€“
These are your heritage for all time!
Be glorious, our free Fatherland,
Age-old union of fraternal peoples,
Ancestor-given wisdom of the people!
Be glorious, our country! We are proud of you!
From the southern seas to the polar lands
Spread are our forests and fields.
You are unique in the world, one of a kind ג€“
This native land protected by God!
Wide spaces for dreams and for living
Are opened for us by the coming years
Our loyalty to the Fatherland gives us strength.
Thus it was, thus it is and thus it always will be!
