Russia sends its military in with orders to hide all identifying insignia on uniforms and equipment and cover their faces with ski masks. Ukraine's military doesn't fire a shot and even hides its weapons in order to limit the violence and bloodshed as much as possible, and its soldiers sing the anthem proudly even as they are forced from their bases. Russia-supporting protestors in the east trash the Ukrainian flag and yell obscenities and derisive threats and orders like "on your knees!" to the Ukraine-supporting locals. Proud Ukrainians sing the anthem, play the piano, and otherwise try to make beautiful art even in these tragic times.
Latest example: Philharmonic plays a flashmob performance of Ode to Joy in an Odessa fish market:
(Official Video). Saturday, March 22, 2014, 10:29 am. Odessa Fish Market ('Privoz'). Members of the Odessa Philharmonic Orchestra and Odessa Opera Chorus, Hobart Earle, conductor, perform music from Beethoven's 9th symphony.
VERY TOUCHING LYRICS IN THE MIDST OF UKRAINE WAR FOR FREEDOM:
Sing with all the sons of glory, sing the resurrection song!
Death and sorrow, earths dark story, to the former days belong.
All around the clouds are breaking, soon the storms of time shall cease;
In Gods likeness we, awaking, know the everlasting peace.
O what glory, far exceeding all that eye has yet perceived!
Holiest hearts, for ages pleading, never that full joy conceived.
God has promised, Christ prepares it, there on high our welcome waits.
Every humble spirit shares it; Christ has passed theternal gates.
Life eternal! heaven rejoices; Jesus lives, who once was dead.
Join we now the deathless voices; child of God, lift up your head!
Patriarchs from the distant ages, saints all longing for their heaven,
Prophets, psalmists, seers, and sages, all await the glory given.
Life eternal! O what wonders crowd on faith; what joy unknown,
When, amidst earths closing thunders, saints shall stand before the throne!
O to enter that bright portal, see that glowing firmament;
Know, with Thee, O God immortal, Jesus Christ Whom Thou has sent.

so that’s whay the russians want to overthrow Ukraine.Too Many Christians
“Cant have them sending missionaries to Moscow, now can we”
there is rap music playing at the same time?
The next civil war: Ukraine.
When the Nazis took over Norway the first to debarck and form was the band that began to play as their troops unloaded from their troop ship..
The only difference between Crimea and Norway was that the defeated brought out the band.
Then why am I seeing videos of Russian soldiers chilling with Ukrainians while chatting on their cellphones? Why am I seeing videos of Ukrainians hugging the soldiers and giving them free food?
