Inscription: 'Darling, You May Think Whatever You Want, but I am Returning to My Ex.' (image) Uppsala University Share Print E-Mail Caption The conspicuous absence of Ukraine from the 'big picture' of the annexation of Crimea reenacted a sort of post-neo-colonial denigration of Ukraine, whose history, culture, and political subjectivity are being ridiculed and rejected, often against the backdrop of blatantly sexual imagery (Wolff 1994). The salient example is verbal and visual depiction of Ukraine as a degraded woman having wild group sex with rascals; i.e. the US, the EU, and others. As a political caricature shows, Crimea, pictured as the unlucky husband of Ukraine, angrily leaves Ukraine for Russia. Credit Artist: Vitalii Podvitskii.
