This traditional folk song, performed here by the group Pikkardyjska Tertsiya, has become the hymn sung at funerals and memorials to those anti-government protesters killed on the Maidan in Kiev. It thus also features regularly on news coverage. At the funeral of Roman Huryk (see: https://uauk.wordpress.com/2014/02/24/roman-huryks-funeral-and-his-intriguing-burial-place/) it was sung by the tens of thousands gathered to pay their respects to him.
The song looks at the pain felt by a mother at the loss of her warrior son who senses his death will come, quite possibly in a foreign land.
This video also continues a theme of this blog on the Music of Maidan, albeit now in a more tragic vein.
