Defence of Ukraine Tweets Offensive Goddess Kali Caricature
On April 30, a message from the Ukrainian Defence Ministry’s Twitter account went viral among the Hindu community. The tweet included a caricature of the goddess Kali, who is well-known as a representation of strength and femininity. However, many people thought Kali’s pose was inappropriate and disrespectful.
The Ukrainian flag was shown on Kali’s shield in the animation, and she was also clutching a sword marked “Ukraine’s Army.” An explosion from a bomb was visible in the backdrop. However, Kali’s pose caught the most attention because it seemed to imitate Marilyn Monroe’s well-known scene from the motion picture “The Seven Year Itch.”

After the photo was published, the Indian community launched a fierce backlash against the Ukrainian government, forcing the Defence of Ukraine to remove the tweet. Goddess Kali being shown beside actress Marilyn Monroe in the midst of a bomb detonation caused controversy.
The most recent visit by a Ukrainian minister to India since the commencement of the Ukraine war in February of last year was that of Dzhaporava. During her visit, Meenakshi Lekhi, Minister of State for External Affairs, spoke with the Ukrainian minister.
Following strong criticism and backlash from Indians, the Ukraine Defence Twitter account deleted the tweet and issued an official statement in which the government expressed “regret” over the caricature of Goddess Kali and expressed respect for the assistance received from India.
Ukraine’s foreign minister, Emine Dzhaparova, tweeted in response to the uproar, “We apologise @DefenceU displaying #Hindu goddess #Kali in incorrect manner. The people of #Ukraine respect the distinctive culture of #India and much value assistance. The image has already been taken off. is committed to fostering greater collaboration in an atmosphere of friendliness and respect.
