The new logo of the Intelligence Service of Ukraine caused a commotion in Russian high officials. The Head of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs Konstantin Kosachev said that the emblem with an owl piercing a sword on the territory of Russia "concentrates the essence of all the Ukrainian policy towards Russia".
Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin wrote on Twitter: "Pay attention to the symbols of moronic Ukrainian security officials".
As Gordon.ua says, Duma deputy Vitaliy Milonov called the emblem a "military challenge".
"Either this is the position of Ukraine that they are targeting a blunt penknife of its intelligence, or it is a misunderstanding that some patriot overdone drawing its stupid logos. Clear explanations should be required. Because, in fact, it is a declaration of war in our direction", said Milonov.
At the same time, Information forces of Ukraine established under the Ministry of Information Policy, commented on the symbolism of the new emblem of Ukrainian military intelligence.
"The Military Doctrine of Ukraine stipulates that the Moscow regime is the main enemy of the Ukrainian state. The emblem of Ukrainian military intelligence, which it represents, very angered Vladimir Putin's inner circle. A night owl, as you know, eating bats (a symbol of the Russian Intelligence), and the inscription on the Ukrainian emblem - "The wise will rule over the stars" - dominates the motto of Russians "only the stars above us", reads the report.
