Latvian Post stands with Ukraine with new stamps

On March 10, a block of postage stamps and a special envelope will be issued by the Latvian Postal service (LP) up in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, LP said.

Half of the revenue generated from the sale of the stamp blocks will be directed to the charity Ziedot.lv for aid to Ukraine.

The stamp block consists of three stamps and an explanatory coupon. The block features the national flags of Ukraine and Latvia, Ukraine's Independence Monument in Kyiv, and Latvia’s Freedom Monument in Rīga as well as inscriptions in Ukrainian and Latvian saying We Are with You! and Glory to Ukraine!

 

The selling price of the stamp block will be nine euros. The face value of each stamp included in the block is €1.44. The new philatelic releases have been designed by the artist Ģirts Grīva.

The stamp block will first be available for purchase in the e-shop of LP and at the largest post offices in Riga: post office No. 10 at Elizabetes Street 41/43, post office No. 50 in the shopping centre Origo at Stacijas laukums 2 and the post centre Sakta at Brīvības bulvāris 32.  

As of March 14, the stamp block will be available at post offices throughout Latvia.
