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:

And on this picture above you can see how this place looks now in Germany.

Then on this picture again reading “Happy Victory Day” a silhouette of a Nazi soldier in a German Army helmet throwing a grenade is depicted. More than that the Russian three color stripes flag is turned up-side-down here so it looks more like a French one.

And this one was a hit too. An army of alien-looking beings celebrate “Victory Day”…

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

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

          • 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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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?

    • 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!

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

    • 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?

      • 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.

  4. 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 🙂

  5. 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).

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