I don't think it was a Russian invasion of Ukraine she portrayed (which didn't happen anyhow) but World War 2 and its effect on a sleepy little town and a young couple's lives -- the old tape that played right after the couple is shown sitting together on the bench is the Soviet announcement of Operation Barbarossa (the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union; "Allemania" is mentioned), and the final scene is 1945 when the soldier returns home.

Thanks mathanxiety
, I didn't pay too much attention to which war it was, although I was sure the Russian Soviets invaded the Ukraine as they expanded the Soviet Union.

Ah, the Ukraine was under Soviet Russian rule until the invasion of the Nazis in 1941.
yes the art was about invasion by the Nazis, not the Soviets. BUt the Russians did invade the Ukraine.
