On December 15, 2013, civic activists, famous artists and ordinary citizens recorded the anthem of Odesa’s Euromaidan. The power in their words shows how Euromaidan was able to win under all the dire circumstances. The Euromaidan activists talk about smiling for the Duke. The ‘Duke’ is the first monument in Odesa, erected in honor of Duke de Richelieu, the first mayor of Odesa. The song is in both Russian and Ukrainian.
