I live in Sumy, Ukraine. It’s 40 km from the russian border. My city was occupied by the russian army on February 24, 2022 – the first day of their invasion. On 6th of March I successfully evacuated my family to western Ukraine. My wife, our 2 daughters (2 and 10 years old) and parents are safe in Germany now. It’s 2000 km away from Sumy.
But the war is still here and we all need to work hard to make our Ukraine strong and victorious. So I returned to my canoe-workshop in Sumy with the idea to build a Ukrainian warrior canoe. It will be painted in a 2-color blue-yellow pattern with the inscription “Russian warship go f— yourself” in Ukrainian and English on different sides. The pattern is under development now: searching for exact fonts, final colors and so on.
The phrase for the inscription belongs to ukrainian coastguard officer at Snake island in Black sea. Now it became our unofficial military doctrine. You can view video-description here – ‘Russian warship, go f— yourself’: Ukrainian soldier’s last words to Russian troops
The goal of the project is: to rise money via crowdfunding platforms to support Army of Ukraine and local humanitarian organizations. The canoes will be donated to embassies of countries supporting Ukraine during this hard time.
Transfer of canoe: I will transfer canoe from Sumy to Lviv, Ukraine by my own. It’s almost Poland (EU). I can’t leave country to deliver the canoe abroad, but we’ll find solution. This canoe will come to its owner safely.
Shipping time: around 7 days in Ukraine.
Here are some of my previously made canoes:
