FURIOUS Ukrainians ridiculed the size of Putin’s penis yesterday at rallies in Odessa.
They shrugged off the threat of World War III and the “imminent invasion” to play pranks on the president’s private affairs.
Hundreds of people marched through the city, chanting “Glory to Ukraine!” and “Ukraine above all!”
But when the leaders of the demonstration shouted “Putin!” the crowd roared in response “Fuck!” – a derogatory insult that means “small dick”.
They responded by shouting “Putin, go to hell!”
The demonstration was timed to coincide with the 8th anniversary of the Maidan massacre, when 107 democratic activists were shot during protests in Kiev.
Sofia Valikaya, 14, who attended yesterday’s march with her mother and grandmother, said: “We are the people of the world. We just want Ukraine to be free.”
Her grandmother Zoya added: “We want to build our future.”
At least 500 people took part in the action, including cadets of the Navy and the police.
Many were wrapped in Ukrainian flags or wore blue and yellow ribbons in their hair.

Ukrainian President Zelenskiy has called for an urgent ceasefire after heavy shelling killed two soldiers and a third lost an arm near the front line of Russia-backed rebels.
Zelenskiy was angry at the West for not doing more to stop Putin and likened Europe’s soft-soft approach to doomed attempts to appease Hitler.
In an address to world leaders in Munich, Zelensky said: “When asked ‘Why die for Danzig?’ turned into a need to die for Dunkirk.”
About 38 people were burned alive in Odessa during horrific clashes between separatists and government groups in 2014.
