President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy took part in the cancellation of the postage stamp of the "Russian Warship…" series, which was put into circulation by Ukrposhta specially on the Day of the Marines of Ukraine, May 23.
Commander of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Oleksiy Neizhpapa and Director General of Ukrposhta Ihor Smilyanskyi took part in the special cancellation of the stamps together with the Head of State.
These are the postage stamps “Russian warship… Done! Death to enemies!” for shipments in Ukraine and “Russian warship… Done! Glory to the nation!” for international shipments. They will be issued with a total circulation of 5 million copies.
The head of the national postal operator reminded that the Russian missile cruiser Moskva sank 40 days ago, which was also a good reason to issue a new stamp.
"Things like this stamp are first and foremost symbols that help us believe in our victory. That we will definitely win this war, and the occupier will go to the bottom. People's interest in these stamps proves that. I am convinced that we will have many more such symbols of victory," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
Ihor Smilyanskyi said that the stamps of the "Russian warship… Done!" series will be sold on world markets for the first time, and part of the income will be allocated to support the defenders of Ukraine.
According to him, today the stamps will be canceled in all regions of the country, in particular in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Stamps will also be canceled in Kyiv for the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, the cities of Sevastopol and Kherson.
Postage stamps "Russian warship… Done!" will be sold in more than 1,500 Ukrposhta offices. 1.5 million stamps will be sold on Ukrainian and international websites. There will be a limit on the sale of stamps: two sheets of stamps, five envelopes and five cards for one order.
