Since the day Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began on February 24, an iconic moment emerged from the early days when the Russian warship Moskva has asked Ukrainian border guards on Snake island to surrender. But the soldiers said the ship to go f*** yourself.
After two(2) months, the border guards are alive & have received awards from the Ukrainian government, the Russian warship is at the base of the sea. But the dialogue went viral on social media & was later etched on stamps that are selling like hotcakes in Ukraine.
Meanwhile, the majority of the Ukrainians have been spotted standing in queues for hours outside post offices to get their hands on the iconic moment from the Ukraine war.
As per one of the 63-year-old buyer, said, after two sheets of stamps, I have never felt so much pride before in our nation. It is a symbol of our courage and steadfastness.”
Available from Kyiv’s central post office, the stamps show Ukrainian troops giving the finger to Moskva. The now viral phrase has been used on the sides of the stamps.
At the same time, the Ukrainian designated postal operator, Ukrposhta, has been continuously updating about the huge sale of these stamps.
It has said in one of the posts, “It has been five days since the launch of the postage stamp with the ship, and almost half a million copies have been already sold. Circulation was one million, and we do not plan to reprint it. Therefore, each brand will retain its historical value.”
The stamps do not carry the expletive, but Ukrainians say they deliver a strong message.
