    ordered a cessation of overt anti-semitic activities, removal of posters, all manner of spiffing up, making sure that Berlin put on a cheery and welcoming face for visitors.

    Adolf Hitler.
    Nazi Berlin.

    More subtle, more tuned in, more keenly aware of appearances than Vladimir the Shirtless and modern day Russia.

    I might be mistaken, but isn't it generally a bad thing to make Adolf Hitler and the Nazis look good by comparison?
