piglet-Petr-Meme

Peter (Petr) the Piglet, a well-known meme in the Russian Internet, actually originates from a series of innocent 2002 children’s books about the piglet, where he would need a tool or a vehicle for some task, and would receive it after thinking about it. The tractor has become a symbol of emigration, regularly surfacing in discussions on this topic in phrases like “it’s time to steal a tractor and get the f*ck out of Russia”.
