More than 25 million Kyivstar users were deprived of access to the Internet and mobile communications due to a hacker attack that took place on the night of December 12. But despite all the difficulties and huge losses, Kyivstar has already resumed operations and restored connectivity to its subscribers.


But at the same time, despite the fact that the life of any Ukrainian today is closely connected with the need to stay connected, society reacted to a serious problem with humor. And social media has been taken over by another batch of catchy jokes and memes. Read more about the reaction of Ukrainians to the problems with Kyivstar in the article below.


Memes and jokes about Kyivstar and other Kyiv problems


First of all, Kyivstar subscribers were offered to solve the problem of the lack of connection by pigeon mail.



*Sending a message (I have Kyivstar)


And also to use other alternative sources of communication.



*Call me back, please (I have Kyivstar)


Ukrainians also did not ignore the problem with the subway in Kyiv, which is why the following jokes have gained the most popularity.



*Residents of Holosiivskyi district of Kyiv who have Kyivstar: "It feels like God is punishing us for something"

Of course, there were also memes about Kyivstar itself.



*This meme was created for someone else, but Kyivstar is like that today: EXTINCT



*When the guys (air defense) overdid it a bit: DESTROYED



*Kyivstar today


Yes, Ukrainians may be deprived of communication, restful sleep, nerves, and electricity, but they definitely cannot be deprived of their sense of humor, which takes on new colors even during the war.
