The prepositions and postpositions in English play very big role, but
it's not easy to "convert" them into Slavic prefixes.

"Off" corresponds to "от-" or "вы-", but "отписать" and
"выписать" (in Russian) already have totally different meanings.

"Затверджую" ("Утверждаю") is more likely boss's resolution, isn't
it? So, maybe "Одобряю" ("approve")? ;)
