While wandering around Yekaterinburg, Russia – Home of Russia’s First President, there was a fun exhibit on the streets, featuring Communist propaganda against the Nazi's in World War 2.
Since I loved playing WW2 video games as a kid, and watching a good WW2 about the epic Eastern Front (Russians vs. Germans), I was quite excited to share these Translated World War 2 USSR/Communist Propaganda Posters.

World War 2 USSR/Communist Propaganda Posters
MERCILESSLY DEFEAT AND DESTROY THE ENEMY!
(German-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact)
YOU – HOW HAVE YOU HELPED THE FRONT?
FOR THE MOTHERLAND, FOR HONOUR, FOR FREEDOM!
PARTISANS, FIGHT THE ENEMY WITHOUT MERCY!
Hordes of enemies are in dismay
There were battles in forests, by rivers…
Grandfathers once piked them,
And today, grandsons nosedive at them
(Napoleon: “Oh! This is nothing like Germany!”
Hitler: “Oh! This is nothing like France!”)
ONE GOOD TURN DESERVES ANOTHER
In the day, fascist told the peasants:
“Take the hats off your heads!”
At night, he gave back the partisans
His cap, along with his head.
EVERY BOUNDARY IS CRUCIAL!
MAKE MORE TANKS, ANTITANK CANNONS, PLANES, GUNS, MORTARS, SHELLS, MACHINE GUNS, RIFLES!
EVERYTHNG FOR THE FRONT! EVERYTHING FOR THE VICTORY!
I’M GOING TO THE FRONTLINE. REPLACE ME AT THE MINE FACE!
MORE PLANES, TANKS, GUNS, SHELLS.
Why would a pig need culture and science? –
Its outlook is terribly narrow:
It can only snort “Mein Kampf”,
Its ideal is a feldwebel (sergeant-major) boot!
(Signs under the boot: University, School, Courses)
NAPOLEON WAS COLD IN RUSSIA, HITLER WILL BE HOT!
THE POWER OF KYRGYZSTAN KOLKHOZNIKS (collective farmers) WILL CRUSH THE ENEMIES WITH A FLASH FLOOD OF MIGHTY TANKS!
(Words on the tanks: KOLKHOZNIK OF KYRGYZSTAN)
Where are you going, you, filthy fritz? You’d better not go against our soldiers!
THERE WON’T BE BLACK WINGS FLYING ABOVE OUR MOTHERLAND
FASCISTS WON’T BREAK THROUGH!
For the torture and suffering of your loved ones –
Mercilessly drown the fascist bastards!
SHOOT THE ENEMY WITHOUT MISSING!
GO to the WEST!

YOU ARE OUR ONLY HOPE, RED WARRIOR!
Under the Red Army attacks, German generals have learned to: raise hands… turn up toes… and take to their heels…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Thunder comes from the sky and the land,
The “Axis” pillar starts crumbling.
Very soon the two bandits
Will suffer a great defeat.
GLORY TO THE SOVIET AIR FORCES!
The brotherly peoples have set up a meeting
Over the enemy city.
Every time they shake their hands –
The fascist Germany cracks.

CRUSH THE ENEMY!
Hitler was afraid of these pincers,
More than other disturbing things…
The time is coming: gripped by the pincers,
The damned bandit will be crushed!
YOU BROUGHT OUR LIVES BACK!
GLORY TO THE RED ARMY!
(On the poster: Make it to Berlin!; on the wall: We made it; Glory to the Russian people)
MOTHERLAND, WELCOME YOUR HEROES!
