As the Russia-Ukraine crisis intensifies, a clip from the American Family Guy sitcom is providing comic relief on social media. The old clip is from Season 8 ‘Reminiscent Spies of Us’. The clip shows Russian President Vladimir Putin waving to people around him as he makes one weapon after another. At first, they found him stripping off his clothes, but he quickly lost his temper. Then it became a crossroads but immediately it became a hanger tie. Finally, he fired a shotgun, only to light his cigarette. Here is the clip:
Users respond with memes and quips.
“Putin’s Russian invasion.”
“The best way to explain Russia’s policy on Ukraine is now.”
“The family understands the assignment.”
“What did Putin do to the west #Putin #Russia #Ukraine.”
Conflict between Ukraine and Russia reached new heights with Russian President Vladimir Putin signing an agreement recognizing the rift between Donetsk and Luhansk. This signature was followed by a statement stating that Russian troops would enter the area as security forces. The announcement has angered the US and its NATO allies as many fear that this will increase the threat of the biggest security crisis Europe has faced since the end of the Cold War or even World War II.
The US hastened its condemnation followed by major European democracies such as France, Germany and the United Kingdom. Countries from around the world called the southeast also rallied with Australia and Japan condemning the sudden rise.
The US has called the idea of sending security forces “unfair”. Russia defended its move, saying the Ukrainian government had failed to address the concerns of its citizens in southern and eastern Ukraine. The United Nations also condemned the move. India at the UN Security Council called for restraint and called on all parties to join discussions to resolve the crisis in a way that is in line with local government.
