Edition: 20 000 pcs

This original FDC cover and W stamp were issued in Ukraine by Ukrposhta on April 12, 2022.
The stamps are dedicated to the well-known event when a Russian ship approached Zmeiny Island (Black Sea, Ukraine) and offered Ukrainian border guards to surrender.
To this ultimatum, the Ukrainian soldiers (who were in the minority on the island and did not have the opportunity to escape or hide anywhere) suggested that the Russian warship go in a certain direction.
The phrase "Russian warship, go ... " was uttered by Roman Gribov, a border guard from Snake Island. Gribov himself was captured, then he
was released in exchange.
In the future, the phrase became a symbol of the resistance of the Ukrainian people against the Russian occupation.

Author of stamps and FDC - Boris Groh.
