In honor of the de-occupation of Kherson, Ukrposhta has prepared a new stamp – “Kherson is Ukraine!”. You can pre-order it from November 11th. However, the stamp has already been sold out under the terms of the pre-sale. Igor Smilyansky, General Director of the Ukrposhta company, spoke about this.
Brand “Kherson is Ukraine!” turned out to be as popular as the first stamp “Russian military ship, go ..! Glory to the heroes!”. Those wishing to purchase the stamp placed preliminary orders for the entire part of the circulation, which was supposed to be sold under such conditions, in a few days. Therefore, “Ukrposhta” suspends the pre-order for the stamp “Kherson – tse Ukraine!”. Recall that the total circulation of the stamp “Kherson – tse Ukraine!” is 150 thousand stamp sheets or 900 thousand postage stamps.
“Ukrainians so sincerely expected the liberation of the city that they sold out all the stamps that we launched even before the official launch (about 40% of the circulation). I think you will agree that we still need to save a little for the launch day and please the Kherson branches, which have not seen Ukrainian postal products for months, as well as other branches across the country,” said Igor Smelyansky, announcing the suspension of pre-order.
At the same time, he urged those who did not have time to place a pre-order for the stamp not to be upset. It will be available for purchase online in December. In addition, philatelic subscription holders are guaranteed to receive a stamp.
