Kyiv residents snap up new stamp celebrating Crimean bridge blast



Residents of Kyiv have purchased a new stamp in commemoration of the fall of the bridge linking Russia and Crimea. This was a major blow to Vladimir Putin’s reputation.

“There isn’t a corner of the world that hasn’t asked (us to send them) the stamp,” Liudmyla Samoilova, one of the many who waited to purchase stamps at Kyiv’s post office.

As she attached the stamps, she said “We’ve sent them to America, Australia.” “People are excited about these events and they wait to hear the good news.”

Last month’s explosion caused partial destruction of the bridge, which was a major project under Putin’s leadership. Russia claimed Ukraine was to blame, but Kyiv did not deny responsibility.

These stamps show a man and a woman standing on a bridge that has been broken, echoing the scene from Titanic as smoke rises behind them.

Olena Tumanska, originally from Crimea, said she hoped for the destruction of the bridge.

Tumanska stated that “I hope justice prevails quickly” and also said she would love to visit Crimea next spring.

Ukraine says it will one day retake Crimea. It was occupied by Russian forces in 2014.

The Ukrainian national postal service issued the April stamp. The stamp depicted a crude gesture by a Ukrainian soldier while boarding a Russian warship. It was sold after the Black Sea fleet of the Russian flagship was destroyed by a sinking ship.
