Another week with Russia in the news, with the (suspected) poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny inspiring a number of our cartoonists. Earlier this week, Trump and the US postal service proved to be a popular topic among cartoonists. In the meantime, we are planning an online event on cartoons and hate speech. More information will follow very soon, but it will take place on Monday September 21, between 3 and 5pm CET, so save the date!
