People cast shadows on a poster with a portrait of the Soviet dictator Josef Stalin during a May Day rally on International Workers' Day, or Labour Day in front of the statue of Soviet state founder Vladimir Lenin in Russia's southern city of Volgograd, in this May 1, 2011 file photo. The signs read "Victory will be with us (bottom) and 130 years of Stalin's birthday." The Russian city of Volgograd has approved the use of its wartime name, Stalingrad, at events on February 2, 2013, commemorating the 70th anniversary of the 200-day Battle of Stalingrad that turned the tide of World War Two.
