I'll be back: Large billboard in Russia depicts Joseph Stalin as the "Terminator"

Even a... billboard depicting Joseph Stalin is enough to make anti-communists trembling in shock and fear. 

This time, a Terminator-style image of Stalin with a note announcing the 75th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany appeared in the small Russian town of Balakhna, northwest of Nizhny Novgorod.

The billboard was spotted a few days ago on a photo published by the local website of Balakhna. 

Instead of the shotgun used by Schwarzenegger’s character, the Communist leader holds a Kalashnikov rifle which, perhaps, refer to the day the Nazis finally surrendered. 

It is still not known who put up the meme on the billboard or what was the purpose of this action. 

Despite the tones of anti-communist and anti-soviet propaganda for over 30 years, recent surveys show that Joseph Stalin remains a popular personality among Russians and especially among the working class people.
