Ukraine Post Office Announces Winner of "Russian Warship, Go [email protected]#K Yourself" Competition

Ukraine Post Office Announces Winner of "Russian Warship, Go [email protected]#K Yourself" Competition. The winning design features a soldier standing on a yellow and blue background, giving a warship the middle finger. The Ukraine post office website is at : https://www.ukrposhta.ua/en

There is nothing about this competition on their website, which leads me to believe that it's probably just an internet meme. But it's still a pretty funny one.

Another design features the logo "Finders Keepers," as a Ukrainian tractor tows away a Russian tank.

Yet another design shows Volodomyr Zelenskyy sitting outside the Ukraine parliament building, sandbags behind him, saying he will not surrender.

On 24 February 2022, the first day of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, Ukrainian State Border Guards announced about 18:00 local time that Snake Island had come under attack by Russian Navy ships. The cruiser Moskva and patrol ship Vasily Bykov bombarded the island with their deck guns.

When the Russian warship identified itself and instructed the Ukrainian soldiers stationed on the island to surrender, their response was "Russian warship, go fuck yourself!" (Russian: 'Русский военный корабль, иди на хуй', tr. Russky voyenny korabl, idi na khuy). An audio clip of the exchange was first shared by Ukrainian government official Anton Herashchenko, then widely distributed by the Ukrayinska Pravda, and later verified as authentic by Ukrainian government sources.
