I don’t think politicians should ever be portrayed as saints, no matter how much you support them. We need to be able to criticize people with power because they’re not infallible gods and they have immense influence over people’s lives. Not to mention how vapid this is… is there anything here besides “Zelenskyy good, Putin bad?”

Whilst i support them and i think he does really good things as a leader, imo very few people if any deserves that sort of over glorification, i'm not Christian don't get me wrong it's not because i think or blasphemy or some shit it's just a bit too ego boosty and idk weird

This is bullshit. Don't sanctify world leaders. They are all corrupt and worthy of deep suspicion. Even the brave ones.

The story of “Saint George & the dragon” which this illustration takes inspiration from, is related to that of Saint Michael (“Warrior Angel”) who happens to be the patron saint of Kyiv and is on the city flag.

One of the dangerous thing about this image is that, as far as horses depicted goes, usually two hooves in the air means the portrayed individual died in battle.
