Наш рабочий день будет самым коротким в мире. The idea of a six-hour working day was first introduced by Vladimir Lenin in 1919 and partially accomplished in the 1930s; it was postponed in the 1940s due to war preparations and onset of the World War Two and re-introduced in the 1950s by Joseph Stalin before being abandoned in the late 1960s for a normal five working day week with two rest days. Horizontal. Good condition, creasing, tears.
