Between the birthdays (February 28, 1913) and the death (August 27, 2009) of an outstanding person, there are a lot of historical events that Mikhalkov witnessed. And Sergey Vladimirovich himself left a great contribution to literary activity.

S.V. Mikhalkov is of noble origin.
Interesting is the fact that the roots of Mikhalkovs’ names go back to the times of Ivan the Terrible. However, Sergei’s father – Vladimir Alexandrovich Mikhalkov – concealed the noble origin of his son. Therefore, his work career, Sergei Vladimirovich began a simple worker. Along with this Mikhalkov wrote poems and stories. But the fact remains that the genus of the Mikhalkovs is ancient. Moreover, the genealogical tree testifies that the genus Mikhalkov has close relatives with a genus of fat and far from N.V. Gogol.

He is a member of a group of writers in Moscow. In the period from 1935 to 1937, Sergei Vladimirovich studied at the Literary Institute named after M. Gorky.

Sergey Mikhalkov – author of the poem “Uncle Stepa.”
She, like other poems by S. V. Mikhalkov – “Three Citizen”, “Stubborn Foma”, “Merry Tourist”, “We with a Friend”, etc. – were part of the first collection of poems of a talented person. Its exit dates back to 1936. The poem itself was published a year earlier – in 1935. The poem “Uncle Stepa” became one of the most expensive and favorite works for both the writer and his readers. “Uncle Stepa” went deep into the children’s souls. This production has grown more than one generation of children. It is immortal. The glory of Sergei Vladimirovich instantly spread among the children and adults immediately after the appearance of “Uncle Stepa.” Many associated the image of a brave and good giant with the appearance of Mikhalkov himself. The first illustrators of the poem “Uncle Stepa” depicted the main character with the face of his creator – Sergei Vladimirovich. The poem “Uncle Stepa” was very quickly translated into the languages of all the republics that make up the Soviet Union.
S.V. Mikhalkov is a military correspondent.
Sergei Vladimirovich was drafted into the army in 1939. He participated in the liberation of Western Ukraine (already in this hike Mikhalkov began his literary career in the frontline army press). During the Patriotic War, Mikhalkov worked as a military correspondent. Newspapers “Stalin Falcon”, “For Glory to the Motherland” printed his work. Sergei Vladimirovich passed along the heroic path, therefore his articles, essays, humorous stories, political articles and notes in front-line newspapers were understandable and close to the belligerent population. Mikhalkov was even bruised.A man as energetic as Mikhalkov could not remain idle for a minute: at the same time he wrote a screenplay for the movie “Frontline Friends”, for which he received the State Prize of the USSR in 1942. Recalling his war years, Sergei Vladimirovich told about the following case that he remembered. It was a frosty night. Mikhalkov at the field airfield pinned on the fulfillment of the mission of Soviet pilots. On board the aircraft was a large number of leaflets with poetry by Sergei Mikhalkov. They were addressed to the partisans. They had to cheer them up.

A talented person works on scenarios for cartoons. “Three plus two,” “A great space trip,” “New Adventures of the Cat in Boots” – famous movies, shot under the scenarios of Sergei Vladimirovich.
Sergey Mikhalkov – author of the hymns of the USSR and Russia.
In 1944, together with El-Registan, Mikhalkov created the text of the USSR hymn (it was he who won the national competition), and in 1977 Sergei Vladimirovich edited the first text of the National Anthem (this was necessary after the adoption of the new Constitution of the USSR). The second edition is noteworthy in that the anthem lacked the name of Stalin. The third edition of the anthem refers to the year 2000. President of the Russian Federation Putin approved the words of the hymn composed by S.V. Mikhalkov. Sergey Vladimirovich in one of the interviews said that when composing the words of the anthem, he wanted this hymn to be completely suitable for an Orthodox country. The writer admitted that this creation is very close to his heart. Thus, if a combination of the words “Uncle Stepa” for children is a kind of password (which accompanies them in childhood), then for the adult part of the population there is only one word: the anthem. The uniqueness of the situation is that history does not know more than this case, so that the words of the three powerful hymns were written by the same person.

They were reprinted more than once, translated into different languages and have always enjoyed (and will enjoy) the love of children and their parents.
