Ukraine's Banksy Postage stamps depict Putin being thrown

Ukraine has issued postage stamps featuring a mural by renowned UK graffiti artist Banksy to mark the first anniversary of Russia's full-scale invasion. The new stamps depict a man resembling Russian President Vladimir Putin being flipped during a judo match with a young boy. The original art is on a house that was devastated by Russian shelling in the town of Borodyanka, near the capital Kyiv. A phrase with an abbreviated expletive addressing the Russian leader has been added to the bottom left corner of the stamps. Mr Putin is a judo black belt and an admirer of the martial art. 

Queues were reported in Kyiv on Friday as residents rushed to buy the new stamps from the main post office, Golovpostamt. "It's a very cool gesture for the world to understand Ukraine, that we remain in the spotlight," Maxime, 26, told the AFP news agency. She added that she was delighted to see a "first stamp from one of Banksy's works".
