"The design decisions provide the Trident to be placed on the monument's shield, which corresponds to the image on the small State Emblem of Ukraine. The Trident will replace the old Soviet coat of arms," the statement said.

In 2022, in Diia, 85% of 800,000 Ukrainians voted to replace the Soviet coat of arms with a trident.
