For those who think Daniloff is "celebrating the Communist era," this is what he has to say:

“Born in the USSR” is a series of Major Arcana inspired by Soviet propaganda posters of the '20s and '30s. It represents the human enthusiasm for the construction of a better future, a future so far away not to leave anything for the present, that turns into a nightmare.

Of the 22 cards in the USSR tarot, some (especially the Empress and the Emperor) show that enthusiasm and some (Justice, which shows a shackled man beaten over the head with a hammer and sickle) show the darker side.
