где нет вопросов - всегда есть ответ
пламенный, как пионерский привет!

At the times ot Soviet Union, there was a youth pioneer organization (Молодежная пионерская организация). Its members were called pioneers (пионеры), it's something like scouts in the US. Pioneers had a special greeting, it is called "fiery pioneering greeting". (пламенное пионерское приветствие). You can see it on this video:

It is just a rhyme, the fiery answer is compared with a "pioneer's hello". It doesn't mean anything special, just a salutation from pioneer.

You can see пионерский привет or пионерский салют here:  



We often say in Russian: Передаю тебе горячий привет.  Передаю тебе пламенный привет.

How fasinating it is to read this? I can identify words , by virtue of ''spelling'' them, based on sound. But no idea what they mean:p
