This poster produced by Youth for Multilateral Disarmament refers to the downing of civilian passenger flight KAL 007 on 1 September 1983 by the Soviet Union. The poster argues that by getting rid of its nuclear weapons, the UK would make itself more vulnerable to a Soviet attack, not less as suggested by peace groups.
