Hitler Quotes in Buses

Perm prosecutors were looking into a peculiar advertising mishap that saw stickers with a quotation from Adolf Hitler posted in the city’s mass transit system earlier this month, Interfax reported Wednesday.

The quote read, “We will defeat Russia when Ukrainians and Belarussians will believe they aren’t Russians,” Kommersant reported Saturday.

The probe was opened at the request of the city administration, which supports the program to place stickers with quotations from well-known people in the city buses, but denied sanctioning the inclusion of Hitler’s quote.

The program’s coordinators told Kommersant, however, that City Hall authorized the use of the Hitler quote to “unify the Russian nation.”


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
