Vladimir Vysotsky. The Hill.

Commentary to the poem β€œIn its den, they stirred up the preadamite evil...”

Here is stanza 1:

In its den, they stirred up the preadamite evil,
For to force it to take a new trip to the East.
And the bear got up, and advanced along its
Well-trodden road β€” a savage and pitiless beast.

Today, after the victory in Ukraine of the so-called revolution of dignity, the Ukrainian nationalists follow the way of their predecessors.

The poem was written in 1966, modified in 1976.
