First anniversary of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine (February 24, 2022/2023)
On February 24, 2022, at about four in the morning Kyiv time, the president of the russian federation announced a """"special military operation"""" in Ukraine, after which russian troops launched missile strikes throughout Ukraine and launched a full-scale military offensive.
For Ukrainians, 2022 was a year of national unity, a year of courage and victory, a year of endurance and self-sacrifice. The Ukrainian people impressed the world and were awarded prestigious international honors: Charlemagne Prize (for defending European values), Andrii Sakharov Prize (for freedom of thought), The Atlantic Council Award (for outstanding leadership), The Casimir Pulaski Foundation Award (Knight of Freedom), etc.
The postage stamp, issued on the anniversary of russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, presents one of the seven graffiti of the British artist Banksy, created by him in Ukraine in 2022. The graffiti with a judoka who has been sent to the knockout stage was painted by the artist on the wall of a destroyed house in the village of Borodyanka (Kyiv region).
