Talvisota_Molotov_Cocktail_smallThe Molotov bread basket was a high-explosive incendiary bomb used on Finland that was named after Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov, after he claimed Russia was not dropping bombs on Finland, but merely airlifting food to starving Finns. In retaliation, the Finns threw petrol bombs at Russian troops, claiming it was a beverage to go along with his “food.” Hence, we have Molotov Cocktails!
