Ooops…. Moscow WW II Victory Day Billboard Featuring Luftwaffe Pilots Taken Down

A local politician apologized to the citizens of Ivanteyevka after a banner was erected in their Moscow region town that — though meant to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Allied victory in World War II — featured Nazi Germany’s Luftwaffe pilots next to the slogan “They fought for the Motherland.”


It’s not the first time this sort of thing has happened. A few years back a Russian social services agency “copied” the artwork of a Nazi propaganda poster.
