“Unbreakable Union of freeborn Republics,
Great Russia has welded forever to stand.
Created in struggle by will of the people,
United and mighty, our Soviet land!
Sing to the Motherland, home of the free,
Bulwark of peoples in brotherhood strong.
O Party of Lenin, the strength of the people,
To Communism’s triumph lead us on!”
– Crew members, The Hunt for Red October (1990), screenplay by Larry Ferguson and Donald Stewart, based on the novel by Tom Clancy
