Slava Ukraine, Palianytsia, Bayraktar, Chervona Kalina and Stepan Bandera: world-famous symbols of Ukraine in 2022
2022 has become the most difficult year in the entire history of the Independence of Ukraine. Despite all the troubles, Ukrainians rallied and created an incredible and immovable force that united us into one whole. Learn more about the symbols of Ukraine in 2022, which have become famous around the world
The year 2022 has certainly become one of the most difficult periods in the modern history of Ukraine. However, while the russian army is trying to destroy Ukrainian cities, Ukrainians are creating symbols of struggle, raising morale and simply joking, because humor is also a weapon.
Indomitability and steadfastness, courage and heroic resistance, love and respect were the unconditional symbols of 2022, which even today give us confidence in Victory. However, there were still a lot of interesting things. We tried to remember what symbols 2022 left for us.
Military equipment - "Bayraktar", "Javelin" and "HIMARS"
The strike drone "Bayraktar" of the Turkish company Baykar Makina and the American anti-tank missile system "Javelin" have been defending Ukraine from the invaders since the first day of the full-scale invasion. With the help of the bayraktar, many command posts of the russian troops were destroyed, equipment was damaged and great damage was caused to the enemy. Ukrainians create songs, memes, paint pictures, embroider them on shirts, and even name children and pets after Bayraktar and Javelin. The Ukrainians were so fascinated by the work of the bairaktar that, within the framework of the "People's bayraktars" collection, they collected funds for several drones, which are now actively helping our military.
HIMARS is an American reactive artillery system that truly changed the course of the war. In just a couple of weeks, the enemy lost dozens of BC warehouses and bases. The occupiers tremble at just one mention of this weapon, and the Ukrainians emphasize: "Remember, Rashists, Hymars is awake!"
Songs that became a symbol of war
"Oy u luzi chervona kalyna…" - the anthem of the Sich riflemen with the beginning of a full-scale invasion again became a symbol of indomitability. The song was given a new life by the leader of the Boombox band Andrii Khlyvniuk. Today, Ukrainians sing "Chervony Kaliny" on social networks, during services in churches, on tribunes and at children's parties.
"Stefania" - Kalush Orchestra - the song with which the band won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2022. For many, the track is associated with mother, home and Motherland.
Greetings "Good evening, we are from Ukraine"
A greeting that united millions of people and became known far beyond the borders of Ukraine. The popularity of the phrase was given by the Head of Mykolayiv OVA Vitaly Kim, who began each of his evening addresses with these words. Later, the track of the same name by PROBASS and HARDI, which, however, was released back in 2021, became wildly popular.
"Russian warship, go ***k yourself"
On the first day of the invasion, this very phrase was said by a Ukrainian border guard on Zmiiny Island to a russian ship, who suggested that the Ukrainian heroes not resist. And it was she who surely became the main symbol of resistance. It is interesting that the russian missile cruiser "Moskva" went like this, certainly not without the help of the Armed Forces.
Ghost of Kyiv
A brave pilot who became a legend from the first days of the war. The story of a hero who managed to shoot down dozens of enemy planes helped Ukrainians to hold on and feel protected. However, when rumors began to spread on the network that the "Ghost of Kyiv" had died, the Armed Forces of Ukraine revealed the secret. The pilot is a collective image of the pilots of the 40th tactical aviation brigade of the Air Force of Ukraine, who protected the sky over the capital in the spring.
