Power shortages in Ukraine
Since Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia has often targeted points of civilian infrastructure, such as power supplies, leading to power outages. Memes about these power shortages often relate to their ubiquity. Some memes point to increased personal appeal for those who have power generators, and others communicate that the power shortages only increase Ukrainians' hatred toward Russia. Many memes indicate that the temporary loss of electricity is one of the main accomplishments of the Russian military, a trifle compared to the stated goals of Russia's invasion.
