In Russia, Victory Day is May 9, a day to commemorate the surrender of Nazi Germany in World War II. Look closely at this billboard promoting the holiday. It has a Soviet flag, but the soldiers are taken from Joe Rosenthal's photograph "Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima," which shows the U.S. victory over the Japanese in the 1945 Battle of Iwo Jima. Yes, it's been flipped horizontally, so maybe no one will notice. See more at English Russia. Link -via Buzzfeed
Meanwhile American kids are taught perfectly and impartially, aren't they? Last one I talked to thought Moscow was somewhere in Canada, so I'd say you should be more concerned about teaching anything -at all- domestically rather than teaching politicised nuances in Russia.
