A Russian Classic on Victory Day Celebrations against Nazism/Fascism in Europe, 9 May 1945
Katyusha, also transliterated Katusha or Katjusha, is a Russian wartime song composed in 1938 by Matvei Blanter with lyrics from Mikhail Isakovsky. Standing on a high riverbank, a young woman, Katyusha, sings of her beloved (compared to “a gray eagle of the steppes”), who is a soldier serving on the border far away. The theme is that the soldier will protect the Motherland and its people while his girl will preserve their love. (Wikipedia)
