Soviet Propaganda Against USA (posters) Part 2

Posted on September 21, 2006 by team


As promised today comes the next part of Soviet posters.

Some people ask to be more exact about the dating of each poster, but it's almost impossible, they come from personal collections and go without a date.

Soviet army participated in the Afghanistan war in 80s, and Soviet propaganda points here on the source of funding for those who oposed Soviet army in Afghanistan. I think that was not far away from truth, remember that Rambo the Last movie, or it has been said that Osama was the main heroe of Afghani war.

  1. [...] A fascinating collection of old Soviet political posters are on display at English Russia, an up-and coming blog that does a superb job at captuing snippets of Russian history; history of the past and that which is being made now. [...]

    Really impressive. That is what’s going on now with capitalized xUSSR :)

  3. ilyich says:

    I’m not sure what that one with the bombs and “american symbolics” is supposed to mean, but I’m guessing the “N” and “H” stand for “Neutron” (or perhaps “Nuclear”)and “Hydrogen.”

    I would guess that the “stop militarization of space” posters came much later (Reagan-era “Star Wars” problems). Interesting also that these particular posters were aimed at Russians, when they should have been aimed at Americans (what good is it for the Soviet Government to ask Soviet citizens to “stop militarization of space”?)

  4. dan says:

    I would imagine it’s as useful a fear based political tool asking americans to stop terrorism.

  5. Preferimos hundirnos solos…

    La siempre ocurrente propaganda de la Unión Soviética. Aparece en English Russia, un divertido blog con fotografías de Rusia que hace honor a su lema: “Porque algo cachondo ocurre cada día en una sexta parte de la superficie de……

    Regarding the first poster and your questions about the Afghan war, you do not need to go to Rambo to find the truth. “Charlie Wilson’s War” is written by an award-winning American journalist and describes in complete detail, with quotes and de-classified information, how the United States funded the Mujaheddin through Pakistan. Of course it is our fault- and of course, we know it. It is not just movies, it is totally true. Plus the book is really good. You would enjoy it.

    Thanks for the posters.

      And now we get to enjoy them as the TailyBan. The best display of this is a movie of a couple Muhajideen taking out a Soviet helicopter with a US stinger missle and then Allah Akbarring all over the place. And realizing that some 20 odd years later, it would be a US helicopter enjoying the treatment instead.

  7. Putns says:

    Now that’s a nice collection! Despite some of the translations being a bit off (for ex., the ‘Dorogu talantam’ thing, translated here as ‘Road to Talent’, is more like a command: ‘Give way to talents!’ or something like that, my English is not that good). However, I really liked it, made me remember how it was back then… Nice job.

    Well, its not as if USSR government/military didnt wánt to militarize space, but they couldnt truly compete with USA on that. Of course they could never admit such thing to the public. So i think the made this propaganda poster to show the russian people thats military in space is bad, make USA look evil and let USSR safe its face.

  9. [...] Il 21 settembre presso l’Art Directors Club ADC Gallery di New york City si è svolto un convegno per discutere su come il design possa avere un significato sociale, in parole povere su come i designers usino la loro carriera per fare del mondo un posto migliore.Che la creatività giochi un ruolo importante al mondo d’oggi è fuori discussione (basta dare un’occhiata ad un articolo che gira in questi giorni sul web, riguardante le campagne di propaganda russe contro gli usa durante la guerra fredda: link1, link2), si tratta quindi di capire se la creatività possa essere usata come strumento per cambiamenti socio-politici.A questa tesi hanno cercato di rispondere alcuni dei maggiori autori e designers mondiali invitati al dibattito organizzato dall’ADC (Art Directors Club, uno dei primi collettivi di design, fondato nel 1920 a NYC), che hanno cercato di rispondere alle domande attraverso esempi del loro operato. Tra gli ospiti Milton Glaser, George Lois, Tony Hendra, Kurt Andersen, James Victore and Jessica Helfand.Di questo dibattito potete ascoltare il poadcast qui, e leggere un riassunto della serata qui.

    You are right. Reagan’s programm of ‘star wars’ (little bluffing) it was the main reason of the communist system collapsing. It was time when Polish Solidarity movement was breaking the communist conception where hard power hold the society (probably, when that occurrence were in Carter era, in Poland would be a ‘brother aid’ of Red Army).

    You Tell lies you,these photo and drawings with USSR else,we and without they know that you devils and Second world war have won we,rather then you

  13. rodgar says:

    On the poster with French workers quitting Nato – why the hell is Uncle Sam giving the French proletariat EGGS??? note how the honest worker is refusing everything – the North-Atlantic treaty assault rifle wrap as well as something something and EGGS.
    WHY THE HELL EGGS?!?!

  15. Boo says:

    Hellen, it was about twenty years ago and I remember it well. (the equivalent anti-soviet nonsense from this ‘side’) We’d all do well to remember… things forgotten are liable to be repeated!

  16. Boo says:

    Hellen… it was only twenty years ago. If you forget this stuff it could happen again. New is good, but don’t forget important history!

  17. steven says:

    I was surprised to see “Vive l’USSR” in picture #14, it means “Long life to USSR” in french.
    Flags seem to be written in several languages, to suggest that other countries support them.

  18. Abdullah says:

    I notice in the picture I see A lot off Jews look alike people..
    with greedy face and how they dressed, it so Jews!
    and 3 people who’s milking the Middle east blood and oil, absolutly jews.
    I love Rusia as long as they Hate Jews..
    WE WILL NEVER LIVE IN PEACE WITH THEM
    THEY ONLY WAY IS FIGHT! TIL THE DEATH COME.

      As long as you have someone to hate, you’ll never have to look at yourself and take care of your self-caused problems.

      Sounds like human activity the world over. No one nation can really point a finger, we’re all in it together.

    N H on the bombs could stand for Nuclear Holocaust. A reference to WWII atomic bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

  22. oscar says:

    some of the posters look modern… It is sad.

  23. Gena says:

    this is soo true.. specially “American Sort of Freedom” is very true!

    SOOOOOOOOOO TRUEEEEE…
    America is still asshol3 And forever Will, as long they being controled by jews!!

    Long Live USSR

    still true

  26. frishpa says:

    Now i finaly understand. That wasnt prapoganda, athey were actually telling the truth!

  27. Ken says:

    Most of it is true, to a certain degree …

  28. KillaBee says:

    Thanks for getting the 2nd installment up! Like lots of the other posters said, there is an uncomfortable amount of truth in the posters. I especially like the one where the rich business man is handing a poor villager turkey soup…..while his machine is cutting under the villager’s home secretly.

    Great stuff! Thanks for putting them up!

    a picture speaks a 1000 words…cool collection

    Or, like the Gulf Of Mexico? :P

    You Americans are in no way better than we. You just have the money to make it even worse, and you do.

    • Ivan says:

      Kak Ruskie Ludee Nee Yeast Deenik. Did you know that Moscow has more billionaires than any other city in the world, the evil of money is old news. By the way in 2000 there was a reported 3,152,959 people of Russian decent living in America. Do they count as part of the evil America as well? Also you are correct that Americans are no better than Russians. We are actually the same, we are simply doing our best to survive and take care of the people who matter the most, “Our Families.” Knu Tak, Bvee Ruskie, YA Americonits, Shto YA Skashu Tree tee buddim?

  31. Harris says:

    LOL, THESE POSTERS SHOW THE TRUTH OF USA, FINALLY, SOME YANKEE BASHING!!!

  32. columbo says:

    In soviet russia propoganda posters paint themselves.

  33. kater says:

    actually, it’s all the opposite – communist russia (much like today’s wild capitalist russia) is set on making everybody else suffer, only to earn a gold coin.
    communism was the most criminal and hideous system ever, even worse than nazism!

  34. kei says:

    I say this only because I recognise there are so many people out there that hate Americans reasonlessly — if you do indeed hate them so much, please take up arms, and kill someone. But I know you won’t. A coward waits for his government to do something for him he’s unwilling to do. And frankly, all these people out there with the wish to kill Americans when given a gun and told to shoot that person with a face, soul and heart like yours – a slightly different culture which amounts to little more than the last fifty years and hundred vaguely – you won’t be able to do it. Because you’re not as stuck to your convictions as you think.

    And if you would pull that trigger, just because ideologically you hate those people, then frankly – you deserve nothing less than death yourself.

  35. Ivan says:

    Come on Hellen! Can’t you come up with anything more insightful than that? Dig a little deeper next time and maybe you might even inspire people. But your derogatory comment on historical events. Pretty Lame!

  36. Good day,

    I am writing on behalf of Shuter & Shooter Publishers (Pty) Ltd, South Africa. We are currently working on a Grade 11 History book. We would like to reproduce the Soviet poster of foreign capitalists who don’t believe in the five-year plans, which we found on your website in this book. Can you grant us permission to use this poster?

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Kind regards

    What an interesting collection! It is nice to see the Cold War from another perspective. I was surprised to read some of the comments and see that so many people try to use propaganda to justify their hatred towards America. How can a person hate an entire country of people?
