We can argue about whether
editorial cartoons make us laugh or cry, but the best among them should make us think. Here are some of my favorites from France which take aim at Russia’s recent invasion of Ukraine and the West’s counter-reaction.

And yes another genocide in Europe and we all watching on TV!!! The world never learned of these lunatics.
So very sad that we haven’t found a way to prevent malignancies like Putin from gaining positions of tremendous power.
History repeats and never learn due to commerce…
It’s time for the mothers of Russia to step in! They’re a force to contend with.
True. Given Putin’s actions to date, I’m for anything and everything that applies pressure to stop the destruction.
I wish more people would learn from history. War never ends well for anyone really. It’s always the innocent that are harmed most.
I agree Pooja. Unfortunately, such circumstances seems to start with strong men gaining power and people tolerating their lesser crimes for years, fueling their maniacal egos. Thanks for stopping by.
Yes people tolerating their lesser crimes is a big part of it. It teaches them that they can get away with things with no consequences.
These are great. I’ve seen other good ones on twitter. Every nation is getting into the act!
It’s heartening to see so many people doing what they can to support the Ukrainians. I hope such efforts increase the pressure on politicians and others in a position to move mountains, to do the same.
