Russia Post released a stamp of Siberian Crane on 22nd January 2019 depicting a Siberian Crane with a cub and the Europa logo.
The Siberian Crane, or White Crane, is a species of cranes, endemic to
the northern territories of Russia. Sterkh breeds exclusively on the
territory of Russia. There are two isolated from each other populations
of this bird: the western in the Arkhangelsk region, the Republic of
Komi and the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, and the eastern in the
north of Yakutia. In Yakutia, Siberian Cranes nest in deserted,
inaccessible areas of tundra, in highly humid lowland areas; in Priobye
in the middle of swampy swamps surrounded by a depressed forest.
The Siberian Cranes are endangered and listed in the International Red
List of the International Union for Conservation of Nature and the
Convention on the International Trade in Animals CITES, as well as the
Red Book of Russia. Currently, the number of the Yakut population of the
species (in the wild) is estimated at about 3000 individuals.
