About the song attributed to Mary Hopkin, you might want to check out Alexander Vertinsky - Dorogoi dlinnoyu - Дорогой длинною - By the long road on Youtube

Yes, the original is a traditional Russian folk song, I believe. So is "The Carnival is Over" made famous in the West by the Seekers. I think the original deals with Stenks Rasin - a Russian folk hero. Sung by the Red Army choir, it is magnificent!
