The new emblem for the Ukrainian Military Intelligence which sparked an angry reaction in Russia means exactly what it seems, Ukrainian activists say.
In particular, the Ukrainian businessman and public figure Valery Pekar called the emblem "level 800 trolling" of aggressive Russia.
1. Russian intelligence motto - "Above us – only stars," Ukrainian – "Wise to rule the stars."
2. Symbol of the Russian intelligence – a bat, Ukrainian – an owl (guess who she eats).
3. Well, to be sure, the owl plunges the sword in the map Russia."
Besides owls, Internet users have paid attention to the logo of Counterintelligence Department of the Special Service of Ukraine (SBU). It depicts an eagle, overcoming the snake with two crowned bird's heads, similar to a double-headed eagle on Russian coat of arms.
Some users point out the detail, that these symbols depict the actual aim of Ukrainian Military Doctrine, which names Russia a main military opponent of Ukraine.
