Victory Day Agitation

victory day agitation in Russia 1

In Russia they have celebrated “The Victory Day” a few days ago. Most of the cities were decorated with billboards regarding this date etc etc.
Some of the billboard authors failed big time. For example this billboard from Chelyabinsk city, reading “Happy Victory Day” has a picture of a few soldiers on the tank.
People from internet got a closer look for that picture and has found that these are… Nazi soldiers standing near the captured Russian tank celebrating their small victory. Below is the bigger picture.
Some other fails also are listed downthere:

    LOL. This is imbarassing..


    It is inner wish of russians, they want the firm hand of strict germans.

    • Akhenathon says:

      Since Tsaritsa Alexandra, russians have a non-resolved relationship with the “nemtsiy”…

      • interested in the term "nemtsiy" says:

        What exactly does “nemtsiy” mean?


        • Richard says:

          It is from the Russian word for Germans. Although Germany itself is “Germaniya,” the adjective is “nemetskiy.”

        • aaalan says:

          “nemtsiy” means “not we” (literally “ne miy”),i.e. alien, outsider, stranger.
          Another version is “nemoiy”, i.e. unable to speak, dumb.

          • yarunga says:

            Nah. Nemtzy does not come from ‘not us’ but it is taken from the word ‘nemoy’ which is ‘mute’, inarticulate. In Russian it used to mean not only people who cannot talk, but also those, whom you cannot understand since they mumble. And the word nemets or nemoy actually means the same in almost all Slavic languages.

    This post on fails also contains a fail in it. The first tank could not possibly have been captured in Germany, since it a very early make of T-34 (judging by the gun mantlet) none of which survived so long as to get to the Germany when our troops finally got there.

  6. Niels R. says:

    I love the aliens! I suppose they’ll not send me one, even if I ask very nicely :)

  7. Scrat335 says:

    Somebody needs an ass kicking. No more business with that company

    In soviet russia aliens are victorious!

  9. M0L0TOV says:

    This reminds me of the Russian Army recruiting ads post from a while ago. The ships depicted were American. Could the Nazi’s in the Russian ads be some sort of subliminal advertising?

    • ГОРСВЕТ says:

      That’s what I was thinking… I mean on that picture with an upside-down Russian flag… there is not one, but 2 mistakes! It has to be intentional!

  10. YoYo says:

    Yeah. 9th of May for Russians is what Christmas is for the rest of us… Religious celebration…

    That’s the sort of thing that happens when you hire some company in India to do your computer work.

  13. Falconer says:

    That tank photo, according to the label in the bottom-right corner suggests it was taken in Lwow, a Ukrainian-occupied Polish city.

    • confused about Lwow/Lvov/Lviv says:

      I thought it had been a Polish-occupied Ukrainian city. Doesn’t it have strong ties to both ethnic/national groups? Lwow is the Polish spelling, right? Lvov is Ukrainian, and Lviv is Russian version?

      • TarnoPOL says:

        Lwów is original Polish name (and Lwow is name without ogonek) and today it is Ukrainan-occupied Polish city, never inversely, lol. Lvov in English, Leopolis in Latin. Under Hitler’s Generalgouvernement occupation it’s known as Lemberg and after Ukrainian OUN-UPA nazi occupation it is known as Lviv, and that’s all. Thanks to Yalta Conference Lvov never back to Poland, along with whole Eastern Kresy. Roosevelt and Churchill betrayals, thanks to Stalin we got Silesia and Pommerania.

  14. Swede says:

    We can see that the tree in the square has moved over 20 meters in the 60 years passed.

  15. CZenda says:

    I am inclined to agree. The old town definitely looks like Central Europe, not Ukraine or Russia.

  16. Tulkar says:

    More than that the Russian three color stripes flag is turned up-side-down here so it looks more like a French one.

    It rather look like the flag of Serbia, the French one is blue-white-red vertical stripes :)

  17. Tulkar says:

    I agree, French one is blue-white-red vertical stripes while the Serbian one is Red-Blue-White horizontal stripes (with a bicephalic eagle on it).

  18. Dmitriy says:

    On the first photo it’s not Germany, it’s city of Lviv (Lwow), Ukraine. But the soldiers wear nazi uniforms.
