Russia Can Make Anything Propaganda, Even Mario


I think I’m kind of missing the metaphor here, but I will admit that this is an awesomely drawn propaganda poster.

What does the monkey represent? American imperialism? Is the woman a symbol of the poor Russian peasants who need the hammer (and sickle) to save them from tyranny?

Sure, we’ll just go with that.

  1. Although i’m not russian, i have taught myself the writing (not the language though). The text on that poster would be pronounced.. ‘*md*n *nie mfikieo *fja mf*neja ja****d’, with the *’s representing nonexisting characters. I kind of doubt that the artist is russian.
