I know a few slavs, even a few russians, they're all brown haired.
I wouldn't imagine blonde hair is all too common.

But regardless I don't think it's in a style of nazi posters. Mostly because there were multiple styles of Nazi posters that existed. Just do a google image search of nazi posters and you'll see what I mean.
Really? I disagree. Whilst both Nazi art and Soviet art, in the war years, were both constructed around Romantic/Heroic Realism, they had some pretty major aesthetic differences. I don't think it looks like Soviet art at all.

Whilst earlier Nazi art was pretty diverse, after the mid 1930s, and especially during the war, pretty much all Nazi art was done in the Romantic/Heroic Realist style; it's this style that Nazi art is the most famous for, and the style in which the modern Russian pieces were painted. Examples:

Soviet art really was diverse - from Constructivism to Socialist Realism. The Nazis never did anything as diverse as this:

To this:

You can see how much more impressionistic the Soviet Heroic Realist style is than the Nazi style. Very dissimilar to the modern Russian posters.
