Like the perspective, exposure and forboding skies. Nice work, very good composition.

i like the angle that this has been taken very much - it's very dramatic and it certainly conveys your title. i might have been tempted to de-blue the sky, i.e. make it all B&W or sepia even. don't know why, specifically, but i think it might work. maybe, notwithstanding that the sky is also (beautifully) dramatic, the blueness feels a bit optimistic? still, the shot DOES convey a lot of drama, got me thinking (breifly) about the merits (cool icons and flags) and disadvantages (Trabants and the KGB) of communism, and is enjoyable to view. 8.

Nice take on the theme. There is strength, here. I have two nits: the face of the oppressor is not seen and there is a strong overexposure in the otherwise very dramatic sky.

Great image. The only thing I don't like is the round light area around her head.

Very strong composition. Love the way you have framed it and the message here. It's a very powerful image. Very well done. All the best.
