Though I don't know what it is, it sounds soviet so possibly Armenian/Georgian/Russian, etc.  Probably post 1945 and pre 1975.

Agreed!  Khachaturian or a Khachaturian klone, etc.

Not Khatchaturian, but definitely Soviet/Russian. Mid 20th century.
… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

I hear that it sounds like him, but this does not help at all. I have not found this composition in Khachaturian music. I think it will be popular if it was his work.

I'd wager good money that Leonard Bernstein could answer your question--if he were still with us, as your music has a similarity to parts of Bernstein's Candide.  Therefore, I'd be surprised if Bernstein didn't know it.

But yes, it does sounds Soviet, & from the 1st half of the 20th century.  Given its dynamic, theatrical rhythms--could it be part of a ballet or some other work by Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Myaskovsky (or even Gliere?), if not by Khachaturian, I wonder?
