During his state visit to Tallinn, Estonia, Volodymyr Zelensky (45) added a small yet significant detail to his usual attire, as reported by the German newspaper Bild.

Upon closer inspection of the Ukrainian president's olive-green sweater, one can notice something unusual about the cross embroidered on the left side of the chest.

The cross actually forms the coordinates 48.379°N and 31.165°E.

Complete Confusion

In an attempt to decipher the meaning behind these coordinates, the media initially caused complete confusion, following an incorrect report from a German news agency.

The agency initially reported that the embroidered coordinates on the president's chest revealed the location where the Russian cruiser Moskva was sunk by Ukrainian missiles in the Black Sea in mid-April 2022.

This information was incorrect, and the news report was retracted on Thursday evening.

It turns out that the hidden message on Zelensky's chest actually marks the geographical center, the exact heart of Ukraine, near the town of Dobrovelychkivka – symbolizing the heart of Ukraine, if you will.

Message to Putin

According to Bild, Zelensky is sending a clear message to Russian President Putin:

"Look Putin, the coordinates of my country cannot simply be moved. Ukraine remains as it is. No territories will be surrendered."

Estonia's Prime Minister Kaja Kallas (46) also made a symbolic statement with her attire when greeting Zelensky in the Estonian capital.

She wore an outfit in the colors of Ukraine, a bright yellow blazer over a dark blue skirt.

Zelensky received another olive-green sweater from Kallas as a gift, which he immediately wore during his speech in the Estonian parliament.

The sweater bore the Estonian phrase "Kaitsetahe," meaning "will to defend."

"This is also in the hearts of many Ukrainians," Zelensky emphasized in his speech.
