Nothing wrong with Ninel, Traktor or Electrificatsiya!

This is my favourite, pity the poor commie kids that got lumbered with this:

Loriyerik: Lenin, Oktyabr'skaya revolyusiya, industrializasiya, yelektrifikasiya, radiofikasiya i kommunizm (Lenin, October Revolution, industrialisation, electrification, radiofication and communism)
