US state-run media RFE/RL blasted for publishing ‘sick’ xenophobic cartoons depicting Russian speakers as sub-human Untermensch

The US state-run broadcaster RFE/RL has come under fire on Twitter after a long thread of xenophobic caricatures by Ukrainian ‘artist’ Aleksey Kustovsky depicting Russian-speaking people as sub-human cockroaches went viral.

RFE/RL is registered by Russia’s Ministry of Justice as a foreign agent.

The cartoons, published by the US government-controlled outlet over many years, tend to glorify Ukrainian nationalism and take aim at both Russians and Russian speakers, while also depicting President Vladimir Putin and other officials in Moscow as bumbling idiots.
