War in memes

The inner world of Marie Iljašenko


Ukrainians are defending their cities, taking care of their soldiers and helping those who had to leave their homes. They live amidst the war and often directly in war zones. How to cope under such difficult circumstances? Is it possible to respond to war with humour and creativity? Who are Patron, Crimea and Box? How did the painted majolica rooster become a symbol of bravery?  And why did the people of Kiev agree to have an orgy on Mount Shchekavitsa in the event of a nuclear explosion? Ten moments of war that became symbols and memes. Some of them will be familiar since they have made it into our information space, and others may surprise you.
