Monument to the Author of the USSR Anthem Alexandrov Unveiled in Moscow

A monument to the composer and conductor Alexander Alexandrov has been unveiled in Zemledelchesky Lane on April 13. 

      The event is timed to the 130th anniversary since the birth of the author of the national anthem of the USSR.

      Aleksandrov was the founder of the Academic Ensemble of Song and Dance of the Russian Army. He was the People’s Artiste of the USSR, and was also the winner of Lenin and Stalin Awards and the Hero of Socialist Labor.

      One of its best-known works, besides the USSR anthem, is the song Svyaschennaya Voyna (The Sacred War) set to lyrics by Vasily Lebedev-Kumach.
