Rocket To Russia—Ukraine's Punk Rock Anthem
Print Friendly and PDF

I was just about to say that Ukraine having a National Anthem entitled “Ukraine Is Not Dead Yet” sounded very late 1970s punk, although I was thinking less The Clash and more Dee Dee Ramone.

Ukraine is not yet dead, nor its glory and freedom,
Luck will still smile on us brother-Ukrainians.
Our enemies will die, as the dew does in the sunshine,
and we, too, brothers, we’ll live happily in our land.

We’ll not spare either our souls or bodies to get freedom
and we’ll prove that we brothers are of Kozak kin.
(repeat previous two lines)
