(p.211) Conclusions
Graphic Satire in the Soviet Union

John Etty

University Press of Mississippi

Simply, the answer to the question of how a visually literate empirical analysis of Krokodil allows us to extend and nuance our understanding of Soviet graphic satire beyond the concept of state-sponsored propaganda is that Soviet graphic satire was more complex, more diverse and more critical than interpretations based on the propaganda paradigm have acknowledged. Following the analyses of previous chapters, the Conclusion shows how moving beyond the binary oppositions of previous studies enables us to modify the "propaganda paradigm". It also indicates future avenues for research, and highlights the relevance of this study to a number of related fields, including Putin-era internet-age satire.
