The phrase, with which the defenders of Snake Island responded to the invaders' warship, has become the quintessence of the determination of Ukrainians to defend their land. Ukrposhta sought to commemorate this moment by issuing a postage stamp and holding a special cancellation.
The sketch for the postage stamp 'Russian warship, go...!' Was chosen by voting on Facebook and Instagram. The work of the Ukrainian artist Boris Groh received more than 1700 votes out of 8 thousand.
More than 500 authors from Ukraine and all over the world took part in the all-Ukrainian competition announced on the 1st of March on the 30th anniversary of contemporary Ukrainian stamps. Thus, the all-Ukrainian competition turned into an international one and became art therapy for many during the war.
The lot includes:
- Stamp sheet "Russian warship, go...! Heroes glory!” (6 stamps) with denomination F;
- Stamp sheet "Russian warship, go...! Glory to Ukraine!" (6 stamps) with denomination W;
- Envelope "First Day" with a special postage stamp "Russian warship, go...! Glory to the Heroes! with par. F and signatures of the author of the phrase, marine Roman Gribov and general director of Ukrposhta Igor Smilyansky;
- Envelope "First Day" with a special postage stamp "Russian warship, go...! Glory to the Heroes! with a W denomination and signatures of the author of the phrase, marine Roman Gribov and general director of Ukrposhta, Igor Smilyansky.
The lot is unique in that it contains a complete set of products produced by Ukrposhta within this theme. And also autographs of the participants of the Kyiv special redemption — the author of the phrase Roman Gribov and Igor Smilansky.
