Givi and Motorola

The DPR – the People’s Republic of Donetsk – issued its first official postal stamp on Saturday, May 9. The stamp features the portraits of military commanders Arseniy Pavlov (Motorola) and Mikhail Tolstykh and is called “Givi and Motorola – Heroes of Novorossiya”. Viktor Yatsenko, DPR’s Minister of Communications, and Yevgeniy Kovnatskiy, the head of “Donbass Post,” presided over the stamp-unveiling ceremony.

Arseniy Pavlov, one of the two featured Heroes of Novorossiya, was also present for the occasion, which symbolized the establishment of the new state:

“Today’s event is very important for me. We are issuing the first stamp on the first Victory Day celebrated in the Donetsk People’s Republic. This stamp has great significance for the guys who are on the front line right now,” – he said.

Givi and Motorola are war criminals. They are already on WANTED posters in Ukraine and at Interpol. To make a stamp of these two idiots is treason. They are wanted in The Hague and will eventually be tried just like Milosevic and others who did what these two did.
