(how did this initiative not appear here already)

The students of Russian State University for the Humanities, joined by students of other universities, CPRF members (both regular people and deputies), historians and more, are agitating for renaming the Ivan Ilyin Higher Political School on the basis of Ilyin being a fascist.

Ilyin has been promoted as a "great Russian philosopher" by the state media, and is being defended by that same media, and Dugin, a well-known person with similar views and the director of the Ilyin School.

The poster is taken from the initiative's Telegram channel, it reads "Comrades, a replacement! [we] Will not give Ilyich in exchange for Ilyin!"

A gorgeous poster, thank you for sharing this

edit: the longer I look at this the more that dark caricatures nose looks vaguely antisemitic, I have no idea why theyd draw him that that

I think it's unfortunate, but I will give the benefit of the doubt. If more such posters come out with such nose, I'll be suspicious.

The figure looks like it is inspired by vampires, perhaps it was taken from some vampire?

i think its referencing an element of our folklore, кощей бессмертный.

Totally forgot about him!

For other people - Koshchei is a folklore villain, who's similar to liches.
