Ukraine has issued a celebratory ‘Fighters of Evil’ stamp set featuring a squadron of F-16 jets grating the Kremlin to smithereens.
The stamps’ design, created by Ukrainian illustrator Maksym Palenko, shows an oversized cheese grater with the indents shaped in the highly recognizable and ominous silhouette of the powerful aircraft. A hand is seen grating one of the Kremlin’s tower, which ends up as minuscule bits at the bottom of the stamp.
Local reports suggest that hundreds of people queued at Kyiv’s main post office on Friday, the Day of the Air Force, to get their set.
The first print run of 600,000 stamps, which includes four unique stamps, reportedly sold out in minutes. All the proceedings will go to purchase drones for frontline personnel. This much sought-after collector’s item highlights the power of the US-made F-16 Fighting Falcon jets, which Ukraine urgently needs to achieve air superiority over the battlefield. US President Joe Biden has authorized Ukrainian pilots to be trained to fly the F-16 aircraft.
The Fighters of Evil set accurately reflects the mood of the Ukrainian people and that of most of the world when it comes to the Kremlin’s ultimate fate.
