Russia | Special Dispatch No. 9793

Over the last two days, the Arab press has published many cartoons on the war in Ukraine. The cartoons castigate Russian President Vladimir Putin for choosing to invade Ukraine, with many of them presenting him as a cruel warmonger who tramples everything in his path. Others condemn the world, and especially the U.S. and NATO, for their helplessness vis-à-vis Russia, which enables Putin to do as he pleases, and for responding to the Russia's aggression with nothing more than toothless sanctions and thus leaving Ukraine alone in the fray.

The following is a sampling of these cartoons.
