Block of stamps "Heroic professions. Iron men" 2023
The postal series "Heroic professions" is dedicated to people of various specialties who bravely and selflessly work for the Victory of Ukraine. The series began in 2023 with the postal block "Warriors of Light. Warriors of good" and continues with the issue "Iron People", which is dedicated to the heroic work of railway workers.
During the large-scale war, Ukrzaliznytsia became a symbol of national indomitability: the evacuation of more than 4 million people, uninterrupted freight and passenger traffic, fire and repair assistance in liquidation of the consequences of missile strikes, restoration of connections to de-occupied cities.
The "Iron Men" postal block is one of the many stories of the heroism and resilience of railroad workers. May 3, 2023: shelling of Kherson, hitting the train station - a car is on fire, the conductor is injured. Despite the chaos and the air alarm, the railway workers acted in a coordinated and professional manner: they unhooked the car engulfed in flames, provided medical aid to the conductor, and quickly seated the passengers in the surviving cars.
Train No. 109 Kherson–Lviv left Kherson station with a delay of 14 minutes. And on May 4 at 10:18 a.m., according to the schedule, he arrived in Lviv.
Thanks to the brave work of the railway workers, the passengers were saved and brought to a safe place! Today, during wartime, Ukrzaliznytsia continues to transport passengers, including world politicians, launches new international routes, develops passenger services, and creates a barrier-free space.
