Vladimir Vysotsky. In a Faraway Kingdom.

Commentary to “The Song of Goger-Moger”.

This song could be performed by Mikhail Gorbachev and his successor Boris Yeltsin as well as by Ronald Reagan and the continuers of his business George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama on their behalf. And after Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin, there has appeared the bunch Vladimir Putin Dmitry Medvedev... However, our enemy must be embodied in the image of a concrete person, and he, of course, will do also good deeds, otherwise he will not become popular. We must be attentive to small things, in particular to what the popular persons say in the moments of excitement, and be prepared for cases of disappearance or alteration of the documents with in­con­venient words.

The song was written for the play of the Taganka Theater “Turandot or, The Congress of Whitewashers”.
