ZAMESTIM Art Installation In Russia Gets Mixed Reactions

A pro-war art piece has been revealed in St Petersburg in northern Russia, winch is made out of the company logos for Zara, Adidas, McDonald's, Epson, Skoda, Toto Energies, Ikea, and Milky-Way.

All the companies in the art piece had stopped operations in Russia following their invasion of Ukraine, and in the way they're arranged it spells ZAMESTIM which is Russian for “We Will Replace”.

The art piece has caused quite the reaction, with westerners confused about what the Russians mean by “We Will Replace”, whilst locals see it as a monument for the city.

Many interpret it as Russia using it's own resources to substitute western services lost after they backed out of the Russian market.
