Just imagine if that had happened during the Cold War, the offending artists would currently be taking a dirt nap.

Who knows, they might still get it. Putin's not exactly Jimmy Carter.....

That's nothing. The russian army posters show them holding AR15's.

Rusty Russian ships don't show too well on propoganda posters.

In another era, the artist and print house employees would be out of business permanently - at best in the gulag, more likely just dead.

Shouldn't be that hard to photoshop a Kirov Battlecruiser in there.

Nothing to send people to the Gulag over.

Anybody checked on "Mighty Mo" recently to make sure it is still there?
Maybe they are planning on stealing it...

And? They WERE supposedly our allies. Even though they were stealing from us and stabbing us in the back, Rooseveltski thought "Old Joe" was great.

Mighty Mo was the site where the Japs surrendered in WWII. At that point, they were our allies. So, one could make the point that the Mo was the site of a very important piece of Russian history.

Similar to if we had a British ship on a D-Day poster. They were our Allies.

The difference, of course, is that the Mighty Mo spent the next 50 years preparing to fight the Ruskies.

In the old days, it would have been the GULAG for who ever was responsible.

Thank you. Accurate and concise - better than I could have done.

I'm confused as to what the statement has to do with a goofy poster.

Evidently, the Russian military is so hard up for cash, they don't even own the photo rights to their ships anymore!
