Flashmob in Ukraine’s Zaporozhia: A Song From a Soviet Movie

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard



In Zaporozhia on 14.11.16, students started singing in unison at the railway station, where recently all Russian signs were prohibited.

Nearly a hundred people, including singers from the regional musical school, performed a song from the cult Soviet film “Spring on Zarechnaya street” in Russian. A large part of the legendary Soviet movie was shot in Zaporozhia. Therefore, the participants of the action were singing with their souls, and the audience started to sing along.

“We invested a part of our souls in the flashmob, because each line from the famous movie is familiar to all the people of Zaporozhia,” said the organizers.

“Spring on Zarechnaya street” is a Soviet movie filmed in 1956, directed by Feliks Mironer and Marlen Khutsiev.
