And this handsome fellow (lol) is known as a Bannik, a bathhouse (banya) spirit. According to folklore if the Bannik is disturbed while washing he will kill the intruder, the Bannik is also known to invite other spirits and demons along.

The caption reads: "Weapon of Victory"
Here we have 2 models of Soviet tanks the left is the T-34 used during WWII and the right is the "Joseph Stalin" Tank.
