Postal set "We will not forget! We will not forgive! Bucha Irpin Gostomel"

Posted by Tetiana Kuzmenko on

On March 31, a new postal set from Ukrposhta will be released.

In the first days of Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine, the cities of Kyiv region took the brunt of the enemy's attack, aimed at the capital of Ukraine. Civilians faced the inhuman cruelty and arbitrariness of the occupiers: the mass killing of the civilian population in Buch, accompanied by torture and rape, was called the "Buch Massacre." In the fields of the block, a panoramic photo of Irpen shows the extent of the city's destruction. The postage stamps of the block feature documentary photos of a destroyed column of enemy vehicles on Vokzalny Street in Buch, crossings over the Irpin River, which was the main evacuation route for the civilian population, and a picture of the world's largest transport aircraft AN-225 "Mriya" destroyed by the enemy at the airfield in Gostomel . In March 2022, 10 Ukrainian cities, including Bucha, Irpin, Gostomel, were awarded the honorary title "Hero City of Ukraine".

The set includes:

Block "Let's not forget! We will not forgive! Bucha Irpin Gostomel"
Envelope "Cities of Heroes. Kyiv region"
Card "City of Heroes. Bucha"
Card "City of Heroes. Irpin"
Card "City of Heroes. Gostomel"

Will be available for purchase shortly after release.
