As a result of the traversed path of struggle and hardship it is pleasant and joyful to have our own Constitution, treating the fruits of our victories. It is pleasant and joyful to know what our people fought for and how they achieved a worldwide historic victory. It is pleasant and joyful to know, that the blood shed abundantly by our people did not fall in vain, and that it bore results. \r\nStalin.\r\nartist: G. Lyakhin \r\n[no date]
