Serbia helps the Russian White Émigrés post WWI and the Russians return the favor / Russian-Serbian Allies honored in 2015 Easter Card by Rostislav Polchaninoff

2015 Easter Card by Rostislav Polchaninoff
"This is a beautiful 1921 poster of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croatians and Solvenes - the Future Yugoslavia, the only country of all the "Allies" that welcomed the White Émigrés, paid the Russian soldiers a pension, and remembered that Russia went to War in WW I to help brother Serbia. In turn, the many professionals among the White Émigrés helped rebuild the post-war devastated Kingdom."
