A tiny, strategically located Ukrainian island in the Black Sea became famous after 13 Ukrainian border guards refused to surrender to Russian navy. Their response to a warning from an approaching Russian vessel to lay down their weapons or face bombing was, “Russian warship, go f*** yourself.”

That was the first day of the invasion, February 24, 2022. Since then, the border guards’ response has become a rallying cry for Ukrainian resistance.

Almost immediately after the start of the invasion, DOOH operators all over the world started displaying messages in support of Ukraine.
