    Banksy has claimed responsibility for several graffiti in Ukraine in a video posted on Instagram. Finally, a lettering with the words: “In solidarity with the people of Ukraine” is displayed. The first pictures by the artist, who has remained anonymous to this day, had already appeared in Kyiv, Irpin and Borodjanka on Saturday.

    Putin on the ground

    So far, Banksy has only confirmed one work of art through a post: a girl has been doing a handstand on a gray, destroyed house wall for a few days. The now published making-of film shows the street artist cutting and spraying stencils – of course without showing his face and thus revealing his identity. Despite repeated assumptions, to this day no one really knows who is behind them.

    Banksy’s legacies, on the other hand, are easy to see: Among other things, he immortalized himself on a wall in Borodjanka, of which hardly anything is left. The graffito there shows how a child throws a grown man to the ground in judo – the Russian President Vladimir Putin is probably meant by the loser. He’s an avid judoka. That image was shared by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry on twitter and commented on it by saying: “We are stronger than David. You are weaker than Goliath.”

    Near Maidan Square in Kyiv, Banksy lets two children swing on a tank trap – snow has fallen in the meantime.

    In the Kiev suburb of Irpin, a gymnast with a ribbon in her hand dances over a hole in a wall.

    That building is said to have been hit by a Russian bomb.

    An elderly gentleman sits in a bathtub and scrubs his back with a large brush. Banksy spray-painted the image onto the tiled bathroom wall of a house with a huge gap in the facade.

    Another – and a particularly impressive – Banksy in the village of Horenka near Kyiv.

    Banksy has added a Russian military vehicle to what is probably already an existing penis on a facade. The genitals mimic her rocket launcher – it remains to be seen whether a war can be won with this.
