Mother Russia (Russian: Россия-Матушка, transliterated as Rossiya-Matushka) is a national personification of Russia, appearing in patriotic posters, statues etc. In the Soviet period, the term Mother Motherland (Родина-Мать, Rodina-Mat) was preferred, as representing the multi-ethnic Soviet Union; still, there is a clear similarity between the pre-1917 Mother Russia and the Soviet figure, especially as depicted during and in the aftermath of the Great Patriotic War – as the Eastern Front of the Second World War is known in Russia.
