The funny, ironic and heartbreaking caricatures coming from #PutinBombingSyria.

As Russian presence continues in Syria, the Internet is responding in the way it always does. Hashtags are taking flight, statements uploaded and a collection of political caricatures erected that cut through the Twitter storm of competing sides.

Moscow sent warplanes into Syria last week, grinding the conflict into a new era defined by fresh alliances , mumblings of ground troops and a whole lot more questions about what to do next.

Under the hashtag #PutinBombingSyria, social media is bringing slapstick memes, shotty photoshop jobs of Vladimir Putin's face on various different of bodies, digs on President Obama's 2013 'Red Line' convictions and harrowing reminders of what five years of war has looked like in Syria.

They're funny, clever and heartbreaking. And they're coming from all sides of the conflict.

Have a look at some of them below.
