Corpses message

Memes of this type show an aerial view on corpses that are arranged to spell out a certain message or other image. According to (linked below), these memes arose after a Russian news story that falsely claimed that “Ukrainian Nazis” arranged the corpses of Russian soldiers in an image of the controversial figure Stepan Bandera on the occasion of his birthday. The Telegram bot “Папка в пакете” allowed users to create memes of this type with various images. The messages conveyed by the corpses are usually either demoralizing toward Russian troops or ironic repetitions of lines from Russian propaganda about the war against Ukraine.
