A hilarious illustration of "image of Stalin" BTW:



They say it is a real poster at the Moscow State University for Railway Engineering (recently officially named after Nicholas II). If you don't know what "postmodernism" means then here it is. If someone doesn't recognize these men:

"Emperor Nicholas II Moscow State University of Railway Engineering". From 1926 to 1928 the Institute/University was officially named after Felix Dzerzhinsky and from to 1946 to 1961 after Stalin, hence the choice of people on the poster. Looks weird anyway.

Topic-related:
Wall of Grief: Russia remembers victims of Soviet repression

I really love the formula "Tens of millions died under Joseph Stalin, who ruled the Soviet Union between 1929-53"
Tens of millions died under Barack Obama, who ruled the United States between 2009 and 2017
