In Soviet Russia, real men didn't shake hands to greet one another--they kissed as brothers! The fraternal kiss and hug became well-known under the leadership of Leonid Brezhnev, who led the USSR during the late 1960s through the early 1980s, and is celebrated in the unique image of the Soviet Kiss WW2 Propaganda T-shirt. The shirt shows a Russian peasant and a Russian soldier greeting one another with the Russian Army behind them and Soviet war planes flying overhead. The top of the 100 per cent ringspun cotton shirt says, "The Glory of the Red Army," in grey and red lettering.
