Russian memes conquer the Internet. “They are incredibly deep and funny,” write foreign publications. “Russian memes are the only reason why I did not drop out of the Russian language courses at the university,” users of social networks admit. Creators of memes quickly respond to current events, be it the poison of Alibasov “Mole” or another photo of Dmitry Medvedev who was asleep at an official event . But Russian memes also inherit the traditions of Russian literature – they are often deeper than they seem at first glance, they have absurd energy (like the poems of Daniil Kharms and other Oberiuts) and philosophical orientation. From the “Witness from Fryazino” to the Giant White Cat in the doorway – the memes reflect Russian life as it is.
