Swastika in Soviet Russia.

Hello dear.
Some time ago I published a post about a swastika in the community on the car of the last Russian emperor, which caused some resonance
Some disputes arose, and even examples were given of an even more interesting combination - the swastikas and the Land of the Soviets. However, there is nothing surprising in this combination. And I will now explain why.
Most often, remember the Soviet rubles with a swastika, as well as chevrons and documents of the soldiers of the Southeastern Front of the Red Army in 1918-1920.
Let's start with the money. Here are the notes of 1918 in 5000 and 10 000 rubles, signed by the governor of the State Bank of the RSFSR G.L. Pyatakov, and often called "heels" in the people.

The reason for such a pattern on money is not mystical, and the masons and the National Socialist Workers Party, which, it seems, have not yet appeared, have nothing to do with it. All corny rests on time and technical capabilities.
After the February Revolution, the Provisional Government was vitally interested in issuing its money.But the order for the early production of paper money with a new revolutionary symbolism came into conflict with the technical capabilities of the Mint, or rather the Expedition of the Preparation of State Papers (EZGB). According to the technology of money production, it took at least a year to complete the cycle from sketch to finished edition. According to the provided sketch, the engravers-artists prepared a model of the banknote, after its approval in color samples and methods of protection a matrix was made, then printed forms were made from it by steel electroforming, which, in turn, were used to replicate bank notes.
Therefore, it was possible to accelerate the release of new samples of banknotes only by using ready-made models, matrices and printing forms from other issued, preparing for release or for some reason unreleased banknotes. In this case, the work of the EZGB on the planned issue of banknotes of the Mongolian National Bank was used.
Here are these, for example:

The new money that appeared in 1917, the bills of 250 and 1000 rubles in the people received the name "Duma money" or "pillows".

Well, the opportunities and time for the newly born Soviet state to make their own money was even less - that is why the “heels” appeared, which went around in some places right up to 1922.
With insignia for some fighters of the Red Army is still easier.
In November 1919, order No. 213 was issued to the commander of the South-Eastern Front of the Red Army, V. I. Shorin, in which he affirmed the distinctive insignia of the Kalmytsky (special emphasis) formations

And the funny thing is that here we are talking not about the swastika as such, but about a certain “Linge”. And it's funny, because the famous Buddhist symbol "Lungta", or "Horse of the Wind", meaning - "whirlwind", "life energy", is a completely different symbol. It can still be seen in Mongolian symbolism:

So or Comrade Shorin something mixed up apparently :-)
And the swastika itself for the Kalmyk Buddhists is a clear and correct sign. She was the personification of the Buddha Law, to which all things are subject. So, Kalmyks, who fought under it, thought that they were fighting for a just cause.
Enjoy your day.
