The mayor’s office of Orenburg hung up a poster dedicated to the defense of the Brest Fortress on the 75th anniversary of the Victory, which posted a photograph of the Nazis instead of the Red Army. The attention was drawn to this by a local resident Victor Lomantsov, on May 8 he wrote about it in the community “Berdskaya Sloboda” in Facebook.
As the Russian noted, the photograph shows the Germans immediately after the assault on the fortress, “when they had already killed all the defenders, we went to take photos on the ruins.” Orenburger added that the Poles are depicted on the right side of the poster – Brest belonged to Poland, but in 1939 it was transferred to the USSR. He concluded that this is a pre-war photo.
According to the Orenday publication, the main artist of Orenburg Natalya Brovko apologized for the mistake to the veterans and residents of the city and promised that she would be eliminated. She also expressed gratitude to “caring citizens.”
Earlier in Chelyabinsk established art object for the celebration of May 9 with three errors in one short sentence. So, the authors were mistaken in the inscription “Someday we will remember it and we won’t believe it ourselves”, writing it like this: “someday we will remember it and not believe it ourselves”. This is a line from Bulat Okudzhava’s song “We Need One Victory” (“Our Tenth Airborne Battalion”). After comments by local residents, the tablet was replaced.
