CARTOONING UKRAINE is a sad sequel to CARTOONING SYRIA which featured Syrian Cartoons.
Syrian cartoonist Mwafaq Katt characterizes the qualities of a cartoonist: ‘by drawing a few simple lines, you can summarise a certain case, mock a situation or expose lies.’
The cartoons of these Ukrainian artists are not just simple lines, they are the professional artistic expression of their anger and grief about the catastrophe of this cruel and unnecessary war. And they see their cartoons as a way of supporting their fellow citizens and soldiers defending a free Ukraine.

The book includes nearly 60 cartoons by 15 cartoonists.
With the essay ‘A Ukrainian Writer’s Reflections On War’ by Andrey Kurkov.
