A new postage stamp in Ukraine captured the overmatched East European country’s sheer grit and determination in the face of Russian aggression — the stamp was dubbed, “Russian warship, go f*ck yourself!”
The stamp features a Ukrainian soldier standing on dry ground giving a middle finger to a Russian warship seen just offshore. The scene commemorating the attack on Snake Island, in which 13 Ukraine border guards stationed there replied to a request to surrender, “Russian warship, go f**k yourself.” Audio of the defiant response took the internet by storm and it was first reported that the Ukrainians were all killed in a subsequent attack, but there have since been reports that they were captured and are alive.
The warship would later be sunk during a firefight with Ukraine, according to various reports.
Apparently, the Ukrainian postal service held a contest for a new postage stamp Boris Groh, an artist from Lviv, submitted the winning design.
The First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Emine Dzheppar, shared the winning sketch on Twitter, saying that it “received the most votes and will soon be published by Ukraine’s state postal company.”

Ukrposhta, the country’s postal service, announced the winning entry in a Facebook post: “With this stamp, you can send letters and postcards even abroad. And most importantly, they will have a sewn-in message that you already know well: ‘Russian warship, go fuck yourself!’”
Needless to say, the stamp was a hit on social media:

Brave people, as so many Ukranians prove during this terrible time. May they win, may their country remain whole and become safe again.

The guts of these people takes my breath away. Let this be a lesson to UK gammons who chunter about Dunkirk spirit when they’ve never experienced anything more threatening than a boy scout jamboree. With #Ukraine under hellish fire, its people still find the courage to stand tall https://t.co/bjK1scqkvr
