๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Ukraine.

  It’s hard not to feel pleasure at the news that one day after the issue of the Ukraine postal service’s release of stamps of defiance in the face of the barbaric Russian invasion of the country, the Russian warship which was featured as being mocked on the stamps, Russian Black Sea flagship the Moskva, was severely damaged by a Ukrainian missile attack on it. And now to humiliate, even more, the Russian warmonger Putin, whose rule substitutes competence by viciousness, and to make his armed forces an international laughing stuff, the news has come through that the benighted ship has actually sunk! Hopefully the Ukrainian postal service can add a third stamp to the present set and depict the Moskva lying in its watery grave at the bottom of the Black Sea. Good riddance.


  1. Is it only me who finds all of Tower Mint's stamps for Pitcairn very similar? Same size and same font used for all the stamps. No doubt it is cheaper to do this, but I hope they issue some stamps that celebrate Pitcairn Island as well.

    1. The Tower Mint stamps are very poor compared with what came before. As you suggest, cost, I suppose, is behind everything.

  2. Theresa May on the 3.80 stamp!
