Caption/Description

A Russian soldier bounds into the air and clicks his heels with elan as he does his 'turn' during the show staged under the new Soviet program for 'education and culture' in the Red zone of Berlin. Smiling benevolently down in the scene is a mammoth poster of Josef Stalin, sphinx of the Kremlin.
