Petro Poroshenko was president of Ukraine from 2014 until 2019, when he was defeated by current Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. His administration and post-presidential activities have been plagued by accusations of corruption. After Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Poroshenko became a vocal proponent of the Ukrainian cause. Memes about Poroshenko tend to mock Poroshenko's posturing as an active participant in Ukraine's efforts in the war. Memes will often insert Poroshenko's face or image into various scenes, both contemporary and historical, of political importance, implying that he is constantly trying to garner publicity and importance.
