RTL’s offensive jokes over Ukraine’s needs and Zelenskyy

The visit of the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to Western allied countries (Italy, France, the UK) was described as a “circus tour” by the French radio station RTL.

Given Zelenskyy’s prior work experience as a comedian, this announcement was made in the framework of a comedy event.

Making circus jokes, though, is inappropriate and offensive when Ukrainians are routinely the target of deadly missile attacks by Russian army.
