War Poster: Motherland Needs You. The Motherland figure is holding a copy of the Military Oath in her hand.

The video uses several songs about the WWII, the first one is the Sacred War, signifying the beginning of the war in her story. If you watch it to the end, the phrase she writes is “You are always near!”.
