A picture of East German leader Erich Honecker kissing Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev became famous and an icon of the Cold War.[8] The passionate kiss depicted was in a satirical mural entitled "My God, help me to survive this deadly love", (German: Mein Gott, hilf mir, diese tödliche Liebe zu überleben), sometimes referred to as the Fraternal Kiss (German: Bruderkuß), on the Berlin Wall (East Side Gallery), painted by artist Dmitri Vrubel.
