Postage stamp "FCK PTN!" to the anniversary of Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine was put into circulation
On the anniversary of the Great War, Ukrposhta presented the postage stamp "FCK PTN!". Cancelation with a special "First Day" seal took place in Kyiv, at the main post office. On this day, special cancelation will also take place in the regions. Seals for the temporarily occupied territories of the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol will work in the Kyiv main post office; the seal for Luhansk oblast will work in the city of Pokrovsk (Donetsk oblast).
On February 24, 2022, when russia insidiously attacked our country from the ground and from the air, aiming to conquer Ukrainians and capture the capital within the days, our people stood up for the defense of state and nation, transforming all their fury against the enemy.
The graffiti on the wall of a damaged building in urban-type settlement Borodyanka, which depicts the duel of two judokas, was chosen by Ukrposhta as a sketch for the postal issue "FCK PTN!". A little boy who knocks out a grown man is an allegorical image - this is the struggle of Ukraine against the russian federation. Our small country, compared to russia, courageously entered into an unequal battle with the enemy and, despite all the difficulties, is fighting for the Victory.
"We believe that the Ukrainian postage stamp "FCK PTN!" will also become prophetic. And in 2023, Ukraine, which is smaller in terms of territory but hundreds of times more motivated, will finally “pin russia to the mat”, commented Igor Smelyanskyi, Director General of Ukrposhta.
The most famous street artist and political activist, Banksy, who anonymously visited Ukraine in fall 2022, created on destroyed buildings in Kyiv and its suburbs a series of graffiti, dedicated to the war. In his works the artist rises important topics and brings attention of the world to the tragic events.
