“"Gimn Rossiyskoy Federatsii”" (National Anthem of the Russian Federation)

In 2000, Russia adopted the tune of the former Soviet Union's anthem composed by Aleksandr Vasilyevich Aleksandrov in 1939. Russia also adopted the lyrics written by Sergey Vladimirovich Michalkov, who authored the Soviet lyrics in 1943.
