The Great Patriotic War was not only at the front, but also in the rear. Millions of Soviet citizens worked tirelessly for the benefit of the Red Army, providing it with ammunition, ammunition, necessary equipment and provisions. Medical units took seriously wounded fighters, trying to put them into operation as soon as possible.
Many industrial enterprises across the country worked at full capacity with only one goal - to provide the entire population of the warring country with food, heat and electricity. However, even in the rear, German troops tried to interfere with the operation of a single military mechanism, which the entire Soviet Union was during the Great Patriotic War.
German conspiratorial sabotage units operated throughout the country. Their tasks included many goals. They dealt with the disruption of the functioning of the food supply routes, the destruction of important objects of the state’s industrial infrastructure, the destruction of sown and productive territories, and the elimination of prominent political figures and specialists in various industries and agriculture.
The damage caused by the activities of such groups very significantly affected the military potential of the Soviet Union, thereby reducing the defense capability of the entire young state. It became clear that spies can hide under the guise of even well-known people. In order to convey to people the idea that they need to talk less publicly about any things of national importance, an appropriate propaganda campaign was conducted. Her crown was the poster "Do not talk!", Created in 1941 by artists Nina Vatolina and Nikolai Denisov.
The image of a woman who was not going to reveal her secrets to a potential enemy turned out to be very successful: the poster was also used after the war, during an ideological confrontation with Western countries.
