In the ring on the order ОТЕЧЕСТВЕННАЯ ВОЙНА - patriotic war. All designs are quite "Soviet Union" in style, as they have taken artefacts of the period as subject.

I received these two Russian commemoratives last week. I quite like the theme 'End of Fascism', especially when it' coming from Putin's country. >:D :D

...........Putin's country. >:D :D
Country Putin ??? Ha Ha.
It's just that the country continues to live with illusions of former greatness.
This state not associated with the name a concrete president.

Nobody do not want to offend anyone, especially myself on a nationality Russian.

My apologizes if I have offended anyone. :-[

However, Putin's image outside Russia is not very good. We Indians consider Russia as our one of the best friend, however, many of us do not trust Putin. That might be because how media presents him. ::)

The finest hour of the Soviet Union was undoubtedly when it defeated the nazis in the East, albeit at a terrible human cost on both sides, especially in Stalingrad. If you are interested, watch the movie Enemy at the Gates (bonus: Nikita Khrushchev shows up). Stalingrad is to Russians what the Battle of Britain is to Britons: much remembered and much romanticised. It is also a political rallying point. This can be seen in the statues on the coins. There is romantic heroism, Soviet art and a bloodless victory.

These coins are issued 25 years after the fall of communism. That doesn't mean that Russia today has returned to communism. The best -ism to describe Russia today is probably nationalism, with an ultra-conservative tinge, that reaches back to czarist times, not to recreate czarism, but to re-create Russia's standing and borders of those days. Putin is a central exponent of those ideas: not a fascist but an ultra-conservative nationalist. Remember mrs. Merkel's telling reaction to the invasion of the Ukraine: "that could be done in the 19th century, but not in the 21st century".

I agree Peter.
Russia's problem (and around the world) is not only Putin. The problem is 90 percent of the Russian population.
They want an empire and new victories.
Russia will do in Syria several states and mints a coin "Victory of democracy in Syria." ;D
