За антиимпериалистическую солидарность, мир и прогресс! [For anti-imperialist solidarity, peace and progress!]
A dramatic manifestation of the Soviet Union’s claim to be the foremost enemy of imperialism, and a vehement supporter of independence movements throughout the third world, as demonstrated here by the traditional dress of some of the figures in the background.
Intriguingly, in spite of this anti-imperialist profession, the Soviet Union had a fairly antagonistic attitude towards any nations that did not support its aims, suppressing Afghanistan, Eastern Europe, the Baltic States and the Caucasus, as well as offering support to insurgent groups overseas.
