"Russian Warship, Go F*** Yourself": Ukraine Unveils New Postage Stamp

Source: NDTV (New Delhi TV

Ukraine will introduce a new postage stamp in honour of the soldiers who defended Snake Island at the beginning of the Russian invasion. On February 24, a Russian naval vessel had asked Ukrainian border guards on Snake Island to surrender. Instead of surrendering, the 13 soldiers on Snake rose to prominence for telling the Russian warship to "go f*** yourself." Initial reports suggested that the soldiers were killed when the Russian warship shelled the island in response, but news website Spectator Index later said in a tweet that they may have survived and been captured.
Ukraine's new postage stamp is a tribute to the Snake Island soldiers who refused to surrender to Russian forces. Titled "Russian warship, go f*** yourself", it features an illustration of a lone Ukrainian soldier flipping off a warship.

The stamp was the winning design in an online competition organised by the Ukrainian Postal Service, Ukrposhta. The winner of the competition, which received over 500 entries, was chosen through a public vote on social media.
