Also, the scenery has been changed to represent a new idea behind the figurines. Thing is, that all these "babies" -- Transnistria, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Nagorno-Karabakh -- are willing to join the so-called "Union of States" which Russia and Belarus are trying to establish for several years now. The idea of this Union was born in Putin's mind (possibly during a severe hangover) and was readily welcomed by Lukashenko. Or maybe vice versa. It doesn't matter. What DOES matter is that the idea is rapidly progressing from a mere "joint Russian-Belorussian state" to a full scale remake of the infamous Soviet Union. Care to join the party?
Ah, and another thing -- the hammer and sickle on the Pridnestrovian flag is not a fruit of my artistic imagination. It's actually there. In fact, they took the old USSR flag and "decorated" it with a green stripe. Damn plagiarists.
