After meeting with Ukrainians found himself shackled to the ground: WP harshly mocked Putin in a cartoon with a horse
The influential American newspaper The Washington Post mocked in a cartoon the Russian dictator Putin and his horse, obviously symbolizing the army of occupiers. Artist Michael de Adder drew a terrorist chained to the ground, bound by Ukrainians.
Interestingly, some readers did not like the cartoon because of its depiction of animal cruelty. The sight of a dictator chained to the ground did not embarrass anyone. This was pointed out by the author of the illustration himself pointed this out on Twitter (to see the photo, scroll to the end of the page).
"Some people disagree with this cartoon. They believe it was drawn from the nature of a brutally bound horse. No horse was harmed in the making of this caricature," the artist wrote, emphasizing once again that no one cares about the leader of a terrorist country.
In his image for the newspaper, he mocked the situation in which the Russian has found himself. Michael de Adder sees him together with a horse, which may represent the Russian army or allies of the Russian Federation, lying on the ground without being able to move.
Tied it to the illustration of the tractor with the flags of Ukraine, which represent the Ukrainian people. The author made it clear that Putin could not defeat the Ukrainians he planned to capture.
In the illustration, the dictator lies in his uniform and topless boots, staring up at the sky in shock. Some commentators found in the cartoon a reference to Gulliver's Travels, where the main character found himself in a similar situation.
By the way, before the new year, The Week magazine put Russian President Vladimir Putin on its cover. According to the publication, the head of the Kremlin became one of the faces of the year 2022, but with one nuance.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, earlier Putin got into an apt caricature of an artist from Azerbaijan, inspired by the situation in the Bosphorus Strait. The Turkish president did not allow Russian ships into the Black Sea, and they were forced to return to Vladivostok.
