Lithuanian MFA recognizes Ukrainian border guard’s response to Russian warship over radio as phrase of 2022
The Ukrainian border guard’s response to a Russian warship over the radio — “Russian warship, go f*** yourself” — was recognized as the phrase of 2022 in Lithuania, Ukrinform reported.
On this occasion, the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a special award, which was handed over to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine.
“Ukrainian border guards inspired the whole nation and the entire free world. In diplomacy, we usually choose more moderate expressions but, in some cases, lines like yours carry the biggest punch,” added Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis.
