"Młodzi rosyjscy oficerowie, "dzieci 1812 roku", mieli możność zetknięcia się z hasłami i ideami rewolucyjnymi. Do kraju wrócili z postanowieniem walki z samowładztwem i absolutystycznym systemem rządów. Oto efekt ich 5-godzinnego buntu."

Facebook doesn't come up for me but suspect it's the 1825 Decembrest Revolt and the Semenovsky Guards took part.
Watched it without a word understood as I do lots of Russian movies. But if that's it well worth seeing for the spectacle.

According to that FB page the film is Union of Salvation ( and the event is the Decembrist uprising (

42 flanker you have me puzzled, Polish?

14Bore07 Feb 2021 3:37 a.m. PST

The link to movie might be here somewhere, came up about a month ago.

"Constantine and Constitution!" My old Russian/Soviet history prof said that in the post-uprising interrogations, it turned out many of the Semenovsky thought Constitution was Constantine's wife.

That's funny.
I did quikly figure out who Miloradovich was but not until end that it was Nicholas running the show to put down the revolt.

@14Bore- that was the caption on the link. I assumed most people have access to online translators.

14Bore07 Feb 2021 7:52 a.m. PST

I tried Russian and it didn't work. Who knows why?
I use translation a lot as do lots of Russian history, Tango tells me it's not exact but close enough.
I couldn't get the link so been flying blind this whole thread.

Amazed those troops stood there as long as they did as they got decimated by those cannon!

There has been discussion about this film 'The Union of Salvation' before. All about the Decembrist's Revolt it looks very realistic. I await the DVD with subtitles with long practiced patience.

That's a really powerful scene. Amazing film work.

Finally some artillery projectiles that don't explode!

It is Polish. Google translate gives this:

Young Russian officers, 'the children of 1812', had the opportunity to come into contact with revolutionary slogans and ideas.
They returned to the country with a determination to fight against autocracy and the absolutist system of government. This is the result of their 5-hour rebellion.

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP08 Feb 2021 4:34 a.m. PST

Yeah. The wife did a paper on it about 50 years ago. Generally a mistake for a Russian government to let people travel too far west and return. You never know what they might have picked up on the trip.
