This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian Soviet export film poster for the 1949 Mikheil Chiaureli film The Fall of Berlin AKA Padeniye Berlina written by Mikheil Chiaureli and Pyotr Pavlenko and starring Mikheil Gelovani as Joseph Stalin. Plot summary: After going to Moscow to be decorated by Stalin for his work as a smelter, Alexei Ivanov [Boris Andreyev] soon finds himself in the middle of a war while his fiance Natacha [Marina Kovalyova] has been deported to a labor camp in Germany. After the Germans are defeated in Stalingrad the offensive against Berlin begins. The film is an unabashed big-budget glorification of Stalin as wartime Soviet leader.

The English title on the poster is Battle for Berlin; the original Russian title is Padeniye Berlina whose literal translation is "The Fall of Berlin," used as the English title for the US release.
