I believe I have found a definitive proof the inscription was NOT present on the other side - another crashed Mig, probably from the same unit (judging by the font of the inscrition)
(source: scalemodels.ru forum)
Also, note the overall shine of the machine clearly seen on second photo

Very interesting. It seems to prove that is that Za Stalina is an unit emblem common to more planes, on their left side only. Brilliant work in connecting these photos each other!

Also, looking at both inscriptions, note how they taper towards the tail.
Probably the artist followed the horizontal line for the lower edge, and adapted the upper one to the narrowing fuselage of the aicraft.
