[Left Side] "Stalin’s Generals"
[Large, central figure with red hat has two faces. The left face is Josef Stalin
and the right is Lazar Kaganovich]
A Great Order regarding

both became generals at the
same time. And each of them can call himself

whose tongue is in the hands of the enemy,
and the dog faced speculator is explaining
why carrots became so expensive
