Cover from Ukraine

I have received cover with beautiful stamps from Ukraine. First stamp is Frigate Hetman Sahaydachniy, issued on 02.07.2016. Hetman Sahaydachniy is a frigate of the Ukrainian Navy that was originally built as a patrol ship of Nerei / Menzhinskiy-class. Homeported at Odessa (since March 2014), she is the flagship of the Ukrainian Navy.

Other two stamps are from set National Minorities in Ukraine - Jews, issued on 27.08.2016.Jewish communities have existed in the territory of Ukraine from the time of Kievan Rus' (one of Kiev city gates was called Judaic) and developed many of the most distinctive modern Jewish theological and cultural traditions such as Hasidism. According to the World Jewish Congress, the Jewish community in Ukraine constitute the third biggest Jewish community in Europe and the fifth biggest in the world. Over a million Jews are killed in various occasions in Ukraine, but most of them during World War Two.

Thank You Roman!
