Мир перекуем
PEACE - end the arms race, reduce stocks of weapons, disarm : let's rebuild


Raev designed many posters with an anti-war and particularly anti-nuclear war message. Here he has created an image of an industrial crusher about to flatten the tools of war. This poster featuring a large metal forging press with the word 'peace' on it above a pile of scrap metal consisting of arms, tanks and weapons, the caption reads - For an end to the arms race that is dangerous for the world, for a transition to the reduction of accumulated stockpiles of weapons, to disarmament. Texts in Russian on poster.
