The SignMyRocket service allows you to put any inscription on the projectile. It was created by volunteers who collect funds to help the Armed Forces. According to the volunteers, they collected about 1 million euros in total. The service representative, Anton Sokolenko, said that in the first place, in terms of the number of donations, are citizens of the United States and Finns in second place.

A Finnish MP said he bought the inscription on Facebook in response to a discussion about "demonizing the enemy" in the Helsingin Sanomat newspaper.

"The war only ends when so many Russian soldiers have been killed that it becomes politically or militarily impossible for the Russian rulers to continue the war. So killing Russian soldiers is a good thing, and Ukrainians should be helped to kill them," he said.
