Germany’s Süddeutsche Zeitung has published an illustration of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that has caused outrage and been called anti-Semitic.  

The caricature shows the Ukrainian president sitting above a table marked «World Economic Forum».

«This ‘caricature’ could have been published in a russian propagandist newspaper. Disgusting», – said Paul Ronzheimer, the deputy editor-in-chief of the German newspaper Bild. 


The newspaper responded to criticism by saying: «This caricature is a graphic illustration of the TV image: the President of Ukraine is on a video screen, in giant size, before the audience at Davos. This symbolizes how strong the topic of Ukraine is».


Süddeutsche Zeitung is the largest daily newspaper in Germany. It was founded on October 16, 1945, and is published by Süddeutscher Verlag in Munich.
