The Russian Post organizes a special envelope envelope in honor of the 160 anniversary of the defense of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky

On August 25, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky will host a commemorative cancellation ceremony for postage envelopes issued specifically for the anniversary of one of the most significant events in the history of the peninsula - the defense of the Petropavlovsk port from the Anglo-French invaders in 1854.

Together with the specialists of the Kamchatka Regional United Museum, the employees of the UFPS of the Kamchatka Territory, a branch of the FSUE Russian Post, created a model of a special stamp dated August 25, 2014. Employees of the Kamchatka Art Museum assisted in preparing the commemorative envelopes.

On the day of special cancellation, 25 August redeemed envelopes can be used for their intended purpose: for example, send them a letter or postcard to family and friends.

The special cancellation will take place as part of the memory ritual for the defenders of the port of Petropavlovsk, which in 12.00 will begin on Nikolskaya Hill at the memorial complex of the Battery of Maksutov. The event was organized with the support of the administration of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatka urban district.

Reference. In 2011, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, the oldest city in the Far East, was awarded the honorary title “City of Military Glory”. There are many bright and glorious pages in its history. One of them is the heroic defense against the Anglo-French squadron in August 1854. The victory of the inhabitants of Petropavlovsk over the European military squadron was one of the few Russian victories in the Crimean War.
