However, Sergei's father - Vladimir Alexandrovich Mikhalkov - hid the noble origin of his son. Therefore, Sergei Vladimirovich began his labor activity as a simple worker. Along with this, Mikhalkov wrote poetry and stories. But the fact remains: the Mikhalkov family is ancient.

The "childhood" of the USSR coincided with the childhood of Mikhalkov. And all the more difficult was the already well-known Sergei Vladimirovich Mikhalkov, the collapse of the Soviet Union - a state to which he was devoted with all his heart. At that time S.

Sergei Mikhalkov is the author of the poem "Uncle Styopa". She, like other poems by S. Mikhalkov - "Three Citizens", "Stubborn Thomas", "Merry Tourist", "My Friend and Me", etc. - were included in the first collection of poems of a talented person. Its release dates back to 1936. The poem itself was published a year earlier - in 1935. The poem "Uncle Styopa" became one of the most expensive and beloved works both for the writer and for his readers. "Uncle Styopa" went deep into children's souls. More than one generation of children has grown up on this work. 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 kind giant with the appearance of Mikhalkov himself. The first illustrators of the poem "Uncle Styopa" depicted the main character with the face of its creator, Sergei Vladimirovich. The poem "Uncle Styopa" was very quickly translated into the languages of all the republics of the Soviet Union.
S.V. Mikhalkov is a war correspondent. Sergei Vladimirovich was drafted into the army in 1939. He participated in the liberation of Western Ukraine (already in this campaign Mikhalkov began his literary activity in the front-line army press). During the Patriotic War, Mikhalkov worked as a war correspondent. The newspapers "Stalinsky Sokol", "To the Glory of the Motherland" published his works. Sergei Vladimirovich traveled a heroic path along with the troops, so his articles, essays, humorous stories, political articles and notes in front-line newspapers were understandable and close to the belligerent population. Mikhalkov was even shell-shocked. A man as energetic as Mikhalkov could not be idle for a minute: during those years he wrote a screenplay for the film "Frontline Friends", for which in 1942 he received the USSR State Prize. Remembering his war years, Sergei Vladimirovich told about the next case that he remembered. It was a frosty night. Mikhalkov at the field airfield was asked to perform a combat mission of Soviet pilots. On board the planes were a large number of leaflets with poems by Sergei Mikhalkov. They were addressed to the partisans. They should have encouraged them.
After the Great Patriotic War, Sergei Vladimirovich continued his literary activity. The writer is working on the creation of children's works, for young spectators Mikhalkov writes plays for performances in theaters. A talented person also works on scripts for cartoons. "Three plus two", "The Great Space Travel", "The New Adventures of Puss in Boots" - famous films shot under the scripts of Sergei Vladimirovich.
Sergei Mikhalkov is the author of the anthems of the USSR and the Russian Federation. In 1944, together with El-Registan, Mikhalkov created the text of the USSR anthem (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 notable for the fact that the name of JV Stalin was absent in the hymn. The third edition of the anthem dates back to 2000. The President of the Russian Federation Putin approved the words of the anthem composed by S.V. Mikhalkov. Sergei Vladimirovich said in one of his interviews that when composing the words of the anthem, he wanted this anthem to be completely suitable for an Orthodox country. The writer admitted that this creation is very close to his heart. Thus, if for children a kind of password (which accompanies them in childhood) is the combination of the words "Uncle Styopa", then for the adult part of the population - one word: a hymn. The uniqueness of the situation is that history no longer knows of such a case that the words of as many as three sovereign hymns were written by the same person.

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