Security Agencies of Russia

Russia Post released a souvenir sheet to celebrate 100th Anniversary of security agencies on 6th May 2022.

On May 6, 1922, in recognition of the activation of foreign secret services in Soviet Russia, the leadership of the State Political Administration of the RSFSR took a decision to establish a special unit in the GPU structure for combating foreign espionage, referred to as the V Counterintelligence Division of GPU and its local authorities. Counterintelligence units were engaged in fighting subversive activities of foreign intelligence services, foreign emigrant centers, political banditry, smuggling and illegal border crossing.

The postage stamps provide portraits of prominent counterintelligence officers: P. Fedotov, E. Pitovranov, O. Gribanov, G. Grigorenko, and I. Markelov, and the symbol of the state security agencies – the sword and the shield. The design of the coupon features the emblem of the Counterintelligence Service of the FSB of the Russian Federation and the jubilee lapel badge "100th Anniversary of Counter-intelligence Services". The margins present images of the buildings in Lubyanka Square when the VChK of the RSFSR SNK started working there in 1919 and its current guise after the reconstruction.

Today is World Postcard day!

In Austria-Hungary, Dr. Emanuel Herrmann (a professor of Economics from Vienna) wrote an article in the Neue Freie Presse pointing out that the time and effort involved in writing a letter was out of proportion to the size of the message sent. He suggested that a more practical and cheaper method should be implemented for shorter, more efficient communications.

His recommendations impressed the Austrian Post, who put them to practice on October 1st 1869, resulting in the Correspondenz-Karte, a light-brown 8.5x12cm rectangle with space for the address on the front, and room for a short message on the back. The postcard featured an imprinted 2 Kreuzer stamp on top right corner, costing half the price of a normal letter.

The postcard was born! 

So Why not write a Postcard to your near and dear ones, your friend and surprise them. Yes, it may have been long back since they have received a card by Post and they will be thrilled to get one.
