This month Russian Post introduced a new issue of definitive stamps! I’m so happy, I was getting really tired of the old stamps. They’re quite large, oddly shaped and have been in circulation since 2009. The new ones are designed after stamps of the Russian Empire, and are really pretty in my opinion.

I got some new stamps today at my local post office, and I’m excited to start using them on my mail!
