We are Bulgars and not Tatars.

Description

Graffiti on a Soviet-era mural in Kazan. The symbol in white above the phrase, "We are Bulgars and not Tatars" is a symbol of the Neo-Bulgarist movement, and it is meant to represent a rune, such as those used in Volga Bulgaria before the state converted to Islam in the ninth century.
