Duet Letter to Putin concerning Ukrainian military
Дуэт имени Путина - Письмо Путину от украинских военных


It's better in the Russian (where of course it rhymes),
but anglophones may nevertheless appreciate knowing
that the approximate meaning is:



Howdy, dearest Vova,
Greetings from the war!
Thank you for our freedom, for our bullets, and our pants!
For us you are the best, the greatest, BUT
For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.
REFRAIN: For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.

We're ready to crap on all your orders,
We know how to kill those "brotherly" peoples.
Send us anywhere, we'll do everything, BUT
For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.
REFRAIN: For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.

While you are in office, we're keeping busy,
Conquering Crimea to make you happy,
We've chatted with the locals and now got something straight:
For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.
REFRAIN: For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.

We persuaded many to accept the Russian flag,
Traitors and cowards now fill your ranks,
The local Russian Nazis are greeting us, BUT
For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.
REFRAIN: For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.

We're not welcomed with bread, but are told to fuck right off,
To them we are but fascists, it's a different country here.
Even schoolchildren learned long ago that
For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.
REFRAIN: For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.

We'll defend your ambitions and luxury,
Even if we fly back in zinc boxes,
You're cursed by mothers time and again, BUT
For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.
REFRAIN: For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.

We are Russian soldiers; we know what honor means,
From now on we won't eat fatback and pilaf,
We're victims of propaganda, but for sure we know one thing:
For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.
REFRAIN: For the Ukrainian military you are a piece of shit.
