From the frontman of Tartak, one of the bands that cheered the crowds during the Orange Revolution...
Enjoy this hit single by Sashko Polozhynsky, the guy who puts the reality of our presidential race into rhymes.
Even if you don’t understand Ukrainian, you’ll find the video and the Limp Bizkit-style music entertaining.
The video opens with a comic scene of former president Kravchuk endorsing Yanukovych in the 2004 presidential campaign. In this campaign, Kravchuk endorses Yanukovych’s main rival: Tymoshenko.
The voiceover idolizes Lenin, coming from the intro to a Soviet recording of his “Что такое Советская власть?” (“What is Soviet power?”) speech.
Poetically translated, the song’s refrain goes like this:
My fellow Ukrainians, here’s the deal
Make me the president of your dreams
And if you want protection from treason
Let me run a dictatorship for a reason
