While exploring Moscow, I stumbled upon these amazing posters from mid-century USSR / Communist Russia.
These came from a time, when the media was completely controlled by the government. Thus they could shape, direct, and force the minds of millions of people in any direction they wanted.
Thus, one day the USSR is friends with Nazi Germany, and the next, they are bloody, savage, and ruthless enemies.
Also, make sure to check out this first post of 33 Translated World War 2 USSR/Communist Propaganda Posters.
