New Billboard in Moscow shows Pippi Longstocking and Moomin as puppets to the USA

The Swedish-Russian poster war is still going! In march a Swedish law firm specializing in immigration law advertised outside of the Russian embassy in Sweden.
Then, as Sweden began discussing the possibility of joining NATO, these posters appeared outside the Swedish embassy in Moscow outing famous Swedes as Nazi sympathizers. One was even vandalized, to say "sorry" in Swedish.  


And now, we have an American uncle Sam character like in James Montgomery Flagg's iconic poster, using Swedish Pippi Longstocking and Finnish Moomin as puppets. 

Don't be "puppets" or don't be "toys"? Either way, we get it.

The copy on the poster translates (to the best of my ability) to: 



All this will end with stupid fun on a pile of garbage, noise and uproar, as it has been all my life ...

Now, I don't know who the association Наша Победа is, but it appears to be the same sender as the previous campaign in May, when I could only make out the word "our" at the bottom of the poster. If you search Наша Победа or Ассоциация Наша Победа you'll find all sorts of news about all kinds of organizations doing things since 2015, but I can't find this specific one. 

Russians, in general, are having success with their posters spreading on social media recently though, as the one proclaiming "Alaska is ours" which was for a local trailer factory was taken by some to be a threat to the USA.


Pippi Longstocking is a beloved character written by Astrid Lindgren, from Sweden. The Moomins are the central characters in a series of books and a comic strip by Finnish illustrator Tove Jansson, which was ironically originally published in Swedish so we love them just as much as Pippi.
