in 1991, the Korean military band played this music while he was reviewing

Farewell of Slavianka
(Russian: Proshchanye Slav1anki) is a Russian patriotic march,
written by the composer Vasily Agapkin in honour of the Bulgarian
women bidding farewell to their husbands who left for the First Balkan
War. The march premiered in Tambov in 1912 and was subsequently
released as a single. Slavianka means "Slavic woman".

While I was in my high school before (1948-50) the Korean War,
the school band played this music every morning. I was in
South Korea, fiercely anti-communist and anti-Soviet.
How did this happen?
