Russia Post issued a souvenir sheet on the 70th Anniversary of the International Nuremberg Military Tribunals on 14th December 2016.

The Soviet Union, the United States, the United Kingdom and France entered into an agreement on trying main war criminals at the London Conference on August 8, 1945.

The postage stamp depicts a judgment hall where the Nuremberg trials took place and in the margins  a portrait of Iona Nikitchenko, a USSR Member of the Tribunal, and Roman Rudenko, USSR Chief Prosecutor, as well as a court house and the document of the proceedings is seen.
