From FTR: In patch 8.8, all the inscriptions, tied to the name of Stalin, will return to all the regions (full text below).

Vehicles, emblems and inscriptions happen to be an integral part of of all Wargaming projects. With their help, we create the atmosphere of those events and years for our players.Some of those elements of the game process (inscriptions “Stalinec”, “For Stalin!”, “For our Soviet Motherland!”, “Iosif Stalin” and others) are politicized, and their use often causes unease and mixed feelings of a lot of players. The company understands that certain individual members of community might have their feelings hurt, but at the same time does not want to twist the history and to further remove content from the game, that is not banned on the international level.

In World of Tanks, such materials are widely available for each of the implemented nations, with the exceptions of symbols, that are strongly associated with the symbols of Axis countries (nazi Germany, fascist Italy and militaristic Japan) and their allies, who started World War Two. The Wargaming company’s relation towards these symbols is extremely negative and it bans their use in any current or future projects, to prevent their spread in the gaming community.
We plan to keep strictly adhering to this policy.
When implementing the emblem mechanism in version 8.0, we have implemented the possibility to change the lists of emblems and inscriptions for various regions, without formulating the company position regarding the use of these elements. The result of this was that removal of emblems and inscriptions, tied to the name of Iosif Stalin, from the European and American servers and also from servers, located in Asia.
Our gaming community helped us realize the error of removing the inscriptions from the game. Despite the fact that not only victories are tied to the name of Iosif Stalin, but also early war defeats, despite the fact that many aspects of his work have been judget harshly, the contribution of this man in the victory over fascism, as one of the leaders of the anti-Hitler countries coalition, is unquestionable. In patch 8.8, all the inscriptions, tied to the name of Stalin, will return to all the regions.

We remember our history and we are proud of it.

Yeah, I heard about this.

Just because a bunch of Russians heard that we don't have their beloved Stalin inscriptions, they got mad and demanded it be on our server, even though they're not even playing on our server.

Just shows which server WG care most about.

Yeah, Stalin was a good man, ask the inmates of gulags about him.....
Just looked at the russian forum thread, goddamn, stupid idiots everywhere (even the mods), they're all happy about this and cheering this man.
But what did I expect...
