Soviet Propaganda poster.

GPU
Counter-revolutionary wrecker
Revolutionary lightning
The predator's eye glares. The fangs are exposed.
The last swing of the wrecking hand.
And -- the wrecker's done with. The retribution got him.
He is pierced and burned by the non-repellable arrow
Of a lightning-like strike.
You, the enemy stepping towards the betrayer's border, know:
Our sentinel is on alert!

Сверкает хищный глаз. Оскалены клыки.
Последний острый взмах вредительской руки.
И -- нет вредителя. Его настигла кара.
Его пронзила и сожгла неотразимая стрела
Молниеносного удара!
Знай, враг, шагающий к предательской меже:
НАШ ЧАСОВОЙ -- НАСТОРОЖЕ!
