Cover from Ukraine no. 2
Another nice cover received in July from Irina in Kyiv... with two pretty train stamps issued on 22 September 2009 in the ongoing series "Locomotive Engineering in Ukraine", showing engines of the series 2TE 121 and VP 41, both with the nominal value of 1.50 hryvnia; the other two stamps from this 4-part series shown below. There is also a portrait stamp of the Pope John Paul II, issued on 15 June 2001 in commemoration of his visit to Ukraine on 23 - 27 June 2001, 3 hryvnia. The pictorial envelope commemorates the painter ("maljuvalnitsja" - I hope I read and translate the Cyrillic correctly:) Yavdokha Poshivaylo (1910 - 1994).
