Well, the source seems to be an agency of the Russian government. And should that be golden hordes? A search for "golden horse" gave me an airport shuttle, a Chinese film festival, a Kiwi band, and a Chinese restaurant in Brooklyn...

Well - Lynyrd Skynyrd and Putin are probably pretty well aligned politically. I'm less sure about that other thing...

I took Russian from Prof O'Meara at university in order to read Soviet Splitters in the original.

The reign of Alexander I was a pivotal moment in the construction of Russia's national mythology. This work examines this crucial period focusing on the place of the Russian nobility in relation to their ruler, and the accompanying debate between reform and the status quo, between a Russia old and new, and between different visions of what Russia could become.
