Demonstrations of solidarity with Ukraine and against Russian intervention have multiplied in recent days around the world, joining thousands of people in protest parades in various cities on various continents, with anti-war posters and many pictures of Vladimir Putin caricatured. of Hitler.

Katiucha, one of them, recently shared a video that received nearly 100,000 likes. She dressed like a model and posed in military gear in a space.

Olena Kondratyuk, another legislator, demanded that the Ukrainian government look into who decided to switch from boots to high heels and publicly apologize for "humiliating" these women.
