In today’s featured cartoon, Kevin Siers depicts Russian President Vladimir Putin as a clown from a horror film, referring to his invasion of Ukraine, while alluding to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s former career as a comedian and actor. A clip from one of Zelenskyy’s TV shows, where he played a fictional Ukrainian president and is seen shouting, “Putin has been toppled,” has resurfaced on social media.

Morten Morland comments on Zelenskyy’s unrelenting resistance as Russian forces ravage Ukraine, while suffering their own losses of troops and equipment. Putin’s core demands include full “demilitarisation” of Ukraine — and perhaps the ouster of Zelenskyy’s government, who he has denounced as “Nazis” — and that the country declare itself neutral and rule out future membership of NATO.
