    It’s not Ukrainian Fashion magazine, you silly twats. See the cover: Москва means Moscow not Kiev.

      Take deep a deep breath. Relax. I promise it’s going to be okay.

    Looks like standard 80s fashions… though I’m assuming those overcoats and big sweaters were lead-lined.

    Anything you can dig up from the USSR and the cold war Eastern Bloc is greatly appreciated.
