This poem is well-known in Russia. The song is sung every year when we commemorate the soldiers. Initially it was devoted to the soldiers who died during World War II. I think every country has a special day for commemorating its warriors and soldiers who defended the country. For example, Remembrance Day.
If you live in a Russian-speaking country I think your students may be interesting in working with the English version. You can use it either on the Defender's Day or on the Victory Day.
A British musician Marc Almond sang this song in English. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gq-U6InUCLM
