'A killer gaze is secret weapon of Kremlin' — Russian Defence Ministry issues 2019 calendar
Russia has tried to flex its military muscle by publishing a propaganda calendar.
The 2019 schedule, released by the Russian Defence Ministry, features a female sniper, bombers and an attack helicopter.
The pictures have tongue-in-cheek captions, including one which compared the lid of an unidentified missile launcher to an "austere" waffle-maker.
For March, an image of four servicewomen was paired with the caption "a killer gaze is the secret weapon of the Kremlin".
Two young girls wearing military uniforms feature in May.
The promotional item comes amid Russia's military involvement in Syria and ongoing tensions with Ukraine.
NATO declined to comment on the calendar.
