Four short political satires made near the start of Nazi Germany's attack on the USSR - "What Hitler Wants", "Beat the Fascist Pirates", "Beat the Enemy on the Front and the Home Front", and "A Firm Handshake".

The USSR commissioned several of these cartoon political war satires in the first 1-2 years of the war from its Moscow, Leningrad and Tbilissi animation studios. Afterwards, as the full seriousness of the situation became clear, this sort of grotesque satire was no longer in vogue and the animation studios focused their efforts mostly on traditional children's stories. The Lenfilm animation studio was destroyed, while Soyuzmultfilm was temporarily relocated to Central Asia not long after this film was released.

Listed in film catalogues as "Journal of Political Satire 2", yet the actual title card says "Journal of Soyuzmultfilm 2". The first entry in the "series" was released in 1938 and is lost.
