You might be wondering why 333 UAH?

On the front lines of Russia’s war against Ukraine, artillery commanders need to issue clear & concise orders. However, during heavy combat, it’s complicated to fire several batteries at the same time. So, the order has been simplified and in most cases, is yelled out as “333” or “three hundred thirty-three!”

And everyone understands.

It’s designed to save time, a valuable commodity on the front, when preparing the batteries. This innovative command facilitates an effective synchronization of heavy weaponry and personnel, defending their homes and their liberty.

Russia’s war aim is literally and figuratively to destroy Ukraine. But today, Ukrainians have resisted like no time in the past, defending their homes and lives and the very idea of being Ukrainian. And as we build a new Ukraine, the stories we write aim to keep our readers in sync.
