Something’s…Off On This Russian Victory Day Billboard

This year’s parade to celebrate the 68th anniversary of the fall of Nazi Germany is May 9th.

1. Russian cities have started lining their roads with billboards heralding the event.

2. Uhh…

Translation: THIS…OUR VICTORY (thanks Marina).

That’s, of course, a photo-illustration of one of the most iconic moments of World War II — the raising of an American flag on Iwo Jima.
Three of the six GIs in the photo were later KIA in the battle with Japanese.

4. MISSING: one Moscow graphic designer.
