Ukraine’s Road Signs Direct Expletives at the Russian Army

Several towns and cities in Ukraine have changed their official road signs to both confuse the Russian army and show defiance by insulting the invading forces.

A British newspaper correspondent tweeted the following photograph from Odessa showing an official street sign that says “Straight ahead: Fxxx off, Left: Fxxx off again, Right: Fxxx off to Russia.”

Some Twitter users questioned the Guardian correspondent’s tweet saying that it was photoshopped. Shaun Walker denied that, however, and posted a second photo of the road sign from a different angle to prove it is indeed real.

“Somewhat bizarre to have endless messages in my mentions telling my this is photoshopped and “schooling” me in being able to recognize fakes. I took the photograph myself three hours ago. Here it is from further away,” the journalist tweeted.

Ukraine road signs: “Let’s help Russians get straight to hell”

Last week, Ukravtodor, Ukraine’s highway authority, posted a message on Facebook saying Russians could not navigate the terrain in the country. “Let’s help them get straight to hell,” the agency wrote.

The agency asked local governments and communities around the nation to help with the effort.

Ukraine’s ministry of defense posted a similar message, asking Ukrainians to “confuse and disorient the enemy who is illegally moving around Ukraine,” and to remove signs with numbers and names of streets, villages and cities.

“Let’s do everything possible to clear Ukraine of the Russian occupier as soon as possible!” the ministry encouraged.

Signs insulting the Russian forces in every possible way have been spotted throughout Ukraine.

Ukravtodor posted a picture of a highway worker installing a new street sign featuring Russian President Vladimir Putin’s face crossed out.

Russian attack on Odessa “not imminent”

The United States does not believe a Russian amphibious assault in or near the Ukrainian city of Odessa is imminent, a senior U.S. defense official told Reuters on Sunday.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, estimated Russia had launched about 600 missiles since the start of the invasion and deployed into Ukraine about 95% of combat forces it had staged outside of the country before the invasion.

Russian forces continued to try to advance and isolate Kyiv, Kharkhiv and Chernihiv, but are meeting “strong Ukrainian resistance,” the official said.
