According to the person who posted the post, the banner was installed at Training Center No. 266 in Tambov, where drivers of tractors, forklifts and trucks are trained. It depicts the former Soviet Union as well as the former Warsaw Pact countries, the former Yugoslavia, Greece, Finland, Mongolia and Alaska as part of a united Russia.
The post also notes that, according to one Telegram channel, “Russian patriots are increasingly turning to old maps.”
In May, the head of the Constitutional Court, Valery Zorkin, presented Putin with an old map, claiming that it did not include Ukraine.
