“How the letter ‘Z’ became Russia’s pro-war symbol”
TERMINALLY ILL CHILDREN AND THEIR CAREERS FORMED A GIANT “Z”
OUTSIDE A HOSPICE IN THE RUSSIAN CITY.
IT´S DISGUSTING THAT THE STATE IS CO-OPTING YOUNG CHILDREN TO BE PROPAGANDA
MECHANISMS FOR THEIR WAR. IT IS DANGEROUS WHEN SMALL LITTLE SYMBOLS BECOME PROXIES
FOR BEING A LOYAL CITIZEN IN AN AUTHORITARIAN REGIME DURING A TIME OF WAR.
THOSE WHO DON’T WEAR IT, THOSE WHO DON’T SHOW THE “Z” COULD BE
TARGETED BY THE STATE.”
“A traditional symbol of Russian MIlitary Glory, usually associated with victory over Nazi Germany…a character that doesn´t feature in russias alphabet has become an iconic symbol of putins invasion and the propaganda campaign to win support amongst his people.”
