On May 25, the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo published a special "Ukrainian" issue.

Four pages in it are devoted to the works of Ukrainian cartoonists, and the proceeds from the sale of the newspaper will go to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine, according to Le Figaro.

"Despite the horrors of war, humor is widely present in the lives of Ukrainians. In the form of jokes, tragicomic situations or obscene swearing to send the Russians away. And also among cartoonists, such as the Odessa Cartoonists Association, which organizes an exhibition of drawings to respond to rockets with laughter , ” says Charlie Hebdo.

The works, signed by Yuri Zhuravel, Oleg Gutsol or Alexei Kustovsky (aka Cousteau), "obviously ruthless to the Russians, show a humor that does not want to give in to arbitrariness and terror," added Charlie Hebdo. Almost all of them were taken from an exhibition organized in Odessa by a local association of cartoonists.
