    Political poster text

    I've always been fascinated by Russian history, and have a modest collection of interesting items from there, including some from the Soviet era. Can someone on this site translate the text in the images below, which are from a couple political posters? Clicking the images will open them in a larger/more readable view. Thank you in advance!

    1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decree_on_Peace
    Text says first phrase of article:
    "The Decree On Peace, (which) was passed without a dissentient voice by the Second Congress of the Soviet of Workers', Soldiers', and Peasants' Deputies on the 8 November [O.S. 26 October] 1917.

    Alex80 - Thank you for the translation & the Wikipedia info. Very interesting backgrounds on the 2 posters, which I would not have known otherwise. I appreciate your help!
