Porcelain mug with saucer — a replica of dishes from the Great Patriotic War. Such dishes were produced by various factories for various military and political organizations of the USSR from the very beginning. Such porcelain is called propaganda-dishes; it was one of the tools to create a positive image and importance of the organization, along with uniforms, special insignia and unique awards. Until now, "agitfarfor" (propaganda-dishes) is an interesting collectible and, of course, for domestic use. Copies are suitable for designing expositions, filming, creating an atmosphere in reconstruction and, of course, a great gift!

The Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army (RKKA) — the ground forces of the RSFSR in 1918-1922 and the USSR in 1922-1946 (that is, approximately from the formation of the Soviet Republic until the end of World War II). An interesting feature is that there is almost no abbreviation of the Red Army or the name "Worker and Peasant Red Army" in the army documents from the summer of 1941. The name "Red Army" is commonly used. The abbreviation RKKA or the name "Worker-Peasant Red Army" is used mainly in solemn occasions. Source: ru.wikipedia.org и army.armor.kiev.ua.
