Most of the time when we talk about the ‘Great War’, we only speak of it from a Western perspective, but we forget the toll it took on Russia.

When it comes to the unfortunate World War II, there are arguably no paintings from the west during the same period that are as moving as the paintings from the Soviet Union.  It maybe not be surprising that many people don’t like them because of what they remind the world of.  This recently released collection brings to fore the struggle which the Russian people suffered throughout one of the most challenging times our world has ever faced. Scroll through these astounding paintings that depict some horrific natures of the World War II.
