If you find any of these drawings by Russian artist Victoria Tsarkova offensive, check the title of the exhibition they're from: 'No Politics. Just A Joke'.
Tsarkova told RT.com that she "couldn't care less about politics." And in fact, she has refused to give titles to any of the works, and she doesn't refer to the subjects by name.
