Ukraine Posts Anti-Russia Meme Amid Tension, the Internet Gleefully Joins the Fun
The official Twitter account of Ukraine must be helmed by someone very funny and with large proverbial testicles. The country has been faced with the looming threat of a Russianinvasion - a threat that the Kremlin vehemently denies being rooted in reality. The 100,000 Russian troops at the countries' border says otherwise.
The two countries have been at odd since the "Russo-Ukrainian war" first began in 2014, but the use of memes hasn't officially been observed until now. While the conflict has resulted in many deaths and a great deal of deception, it looks like @Ukraine still has sense of humor. The memes shared by the account have been excellent, and are a pretty major departure from their usual material, which consists of images of the Eastern European country and its most talented and revered citizens.
While some people may scoff at using memes as a weapon, we have to remind you that everything is better when approached with a sense of humor. At least with this headache meme, people will start thinking about why Ukraine seems to detest its much larger neighbor. Or, you know, why Russia feels the need to get a piece of that pie. Judging by the overwhelmingly positive response, it's much easier to make an impression on the world if you make than laugh than if you make them read a dry, political piece of writing.
