Writing the result of ‘Soviet nostalgia’
The Russian Defense Ministry and the German magazine Bild exchanged heated remarks Wednesday after the Russian Navy uploaded photos of Russian bombs that had “For Stalin!” and “To Berlin!” written on them.
The photos were taken at a joint training camp where the aviation division of the Baltic Fleet was being trained in missiles and explosives.
The German magazine Bildreported that the photos were taken in the Kaliningrad oblast, only 500 kilometers (310 miles) from Berlin. According to the Russian Central Navy Portal, Bildwrote that the messages written on the bombs are the result of Soviet nostalgia. They demonstrate “dangerous tendencies in the Russian government and army” and may be understood as a “bitter insight into of the Russian reality of 2015.”
