MONDAY MURALS---Interpretation?

 We all know who this is.  Written in the blue part in Cyrillic was originally BRAT (in Cyrillic BPAT) in gray letters.  BPAT (BRAT) means 'brother.'  Many older Serbs, and quite a few of the young, feel strong brotherhood ties to Russia, since, for example, both many Serbs are Orthodox, as are many Russians, and Russia liberated Serbia from German control after WWII.

Someone with a paint brush painted over the original B in BPAT, leaving PAT, which means 'WAR' and painted sunglasses on you-know-who, with blood dripping from his eyes.

Not a cheerful mural, but it is what it is.

 Edit: pastis is a licorice-flavored alcoholic drinksimilar to Greek ouzo. My favorite drink as it is for many people in this area. No more ...
