Soviet propaganda poster celebrating Victory Day (Thursday 9 May). Showing a star with USA, English, French flags partly overlapped with Soviet flag and inscription in Russian: 9 May.
Germany surrendered on 8 May 1945, and the war in Europe was over.

Agitprop is political propaganda, especially the communist propaganda used in Soviet Russia, that is spread to the general public through popular media such as literature, plays, pamphlets, films, and other art forms with an explicitly political message.

The term originated in Soviet Russia as a shortened name for the Department for Agitation and Propaganda, which was part of the central and regional committees of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. The department was later renamed Ideological Department.
Typically Russian agitprop explained the policies of the Communist Party and persuaded the general public to share its values and goals. In other contexts, propaganda could mean dissemination of any kind of beneficial knowledge, e.g., of new methods in agriculture. After the October Revolution of 1917, an agitprop train toured the country, with artists and actors performing simple plays and broadcasting propaganda.
It had a printing press on board the train to allow posters to be reproduced and thrown out of the windows if it passed through villages.
It gave rise to agitprop theatre, a highly politicized left-wing theatre that originated in 1920s Europe and spread to the United States, the plays of Bertolt Brecht are a notable example.
Russian agitprop theater was noted for its cardboard characters of perfect virtue and complete evil, and its coarse ridicule.
Gradually the term agitprop came to describe any kind of highly politicized art.
