  3. Reality check for Russia, Nigeria, Uganda and the American hate groups. How are you going to spin this as 'western decadence'?

    Thank you Sweden for standing up & speaking out for human rights equality.

  4. I'm curious as to how all these Swedes even know the Russian National Anthem, is this something they learn in school? Because Russia is the closest threat? Or are they Russian immigrants or first generation Swedes? Touching though…

  5. Tinkerbelle, from the way it is set up, it seems like it was choreographed by a group, so the participants would have likely been taught the anthem in preparation for the video.

  13. Russia actually listens to the Swedes, and the Fins, they are not Slavs but they are successful northern European peoples that have a large cultural impact in Russia. There are lots of expat Russians in Sweden.

  15. Scandinavia, in general, is miles ahead of most of the world in social and economic justice issues.
