During the Cold War, India was a close ally and longtime friend of the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union provided military and economic support to India and, in return, India provided diplomatic support, even being the only non-socialist state to recognize the People's Republic of Kampuchea instead of the US-backed Khmer Rouge. The two nations signed the Indo-Soviet Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation in 1971 which gave both nations a feeling of security and only reinforced the dedication to...

A song honouring the friendship between India and the Soviet Union, who were close allies during the Cold War. While sung entirely in Russian, the song also features the vocals of Indian actor Raj Kapoor, who became famous throughout the Soviet Union and the rest of the Eastern Bloc through his films. This song was also used by the Communist Party of India, who later released it alongside a recording of The Internationale in 1972: https://youtu.be/9RNybpaKDAA Performers: Karen Oganov...

I was looking for communist songs from the People's Republic of Congo, but unfortunately found nothing. However, I found this gem, a Soviet song about the death of the father of independence of the other Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo. Though not a communist, Lumumba was pro-Soviet, which lead to his capture and execution. This sent shockwaves throughout the world and further escalated the Congo Crisis that led to the communist Simba Rebellion.

I originally posted an older recording of this song as part of a compilation, but YouTube took it down because the image I used for the video suggested that neo-Nazis perform acts of self-harm. Take that as you will. Since then, that version of the song has been reuploaded elsewhere on YouTube and I figured I might as well post a newer version I've found, along with a better translation and an image that hopefully won't incur the wrath of YouTube. Original upload date: 16 July, 2016 (part of...

The anthem of the Petrashevsky Circle, a socialist group in the Russian Empire from 1845 to 1849. The group was dissolved when the members were arrested under the orders of the tsar. Lenin would later acknowledge the group as the first of the socialist intelligentsia in Russia. The anthem itself was written by one of its members, Aleksey Pleshcheyev, to the tune of "La Marseillaise" in 1846. Following the Russian Revolution, the "Russian Marseillaise" came to be sung...

Vietnam and the Soviet Union were strong allies during the Cold War, from the USSR's establishment of relations with the Democratic Republic of Vietnam in 1950 through the three Indochina Wars.

The record this came from broke into three pieces in the mail, so I sent it to a specialist to recover as much of the audio as possible. It was maybe about 90% recovered and I managed to fix most of the rest, but, as you can hear, the third stanza and last line of the song have some noticeable clicking. The other side of the record has the Latvian language version of this song. Here's hoping that it can be recovered too. Singer: Radio Committee Chorus and Symphony Orchestra of the Latvian SSR...

A more gritty military version of the famous Soviet song "Katyusha" which was sung on the frontlines of the Great Patriotic War. Its lyrics sing of the harsh realities of war and the only "Katyusha" they know being the Katyusha rocket launcher, in contrast with the more romantic themes of the original where Katyusha is the name of a woman waiting for her love to return home.
