Russian Warloans

Two years of war emptied the Russian state treasury and in 1916 the tsarist government was compelled to issue a  5 %  military loan. The Skobelev Committee of Russia initiated a thirty-titled series of posters to promote the loan. Propaganda drawings should convince the people to donate their savings for the military cause. That was why artists used military subjects for their drawings. Postcards were made with the same pictures as the posters. As well on the front as on the back of these postcards there were numerous patriotic slogans, such as:

- Save money and buy military bonds.
- Everything for victory.
- Everything for the war.
- Help our army and subscribe.
- Forward for the Fatherland.
- Help our great army to defeat the enemy.
- Etc. etc.
