    Can you translate this Russian?

    I bought a poster yeterday at a garage sale. It has a picture of a woman and a child being threatened by a knife. Unfortunately it's in russian and I have no clue what it means. I was going to email this to a professor at a local college, but I figured that you guys should be able to translate it in no time. It took me forever to get it typed in.

    Diggler Dirk to the first one who can help me!

    ???? ??????? ?????

    I used MS Word. You insert symbol, and then select Cyrillic from the list at the right. The you individually select the symbol. It took forever.

    I don't know what the picture looks like but it sounds like the woman with child is crying out for help from a russian soldier of the red [russian] army, represented by a knife

    Maybe that the red [russian] army is killin innocent women and children?

    Sounds more like she's being threatened by evil capitalists of the West and is calling to the Red Army for help.

    "Arrive to visit my small friend!"

    The meaning of the poster is pretty clear to me. The mother and child are being threatened by the **** bayonet (not a knif like i first thought), and are calling out to the russian army to protect them. The poster is definitely a reprint, rather than an original, but it only cost me a quarter and it looks really cool.

    Thanks for the help.

    Edit: the bleep is supposed to be N A Z I.
