SEVASTOPOL

Sevastopol or traditionally Sebastopol  is a city located in the southwestern region of the Crimean Peninsula on the Black Sea. As a result of the annexation of Crimea by Russia, the city is currently a subject of territorial dispute between Ukraine, which considers Sevastopol as a city with special status, and Russia, which considers it a federal city within the Crimean Federal DistrictThe city has been a home to the Russian Black Sea Fleet, which is why it was considered as a separate city in Crimea of significant military importance and was therefore onceclosed city.

Two beautiful covers posted from the new Russian overseas region called Sevastopol. These two covers posted by my very good friend David during his vacation in Crimea and Sevastopol. The covers posted on June 30, 2016 and I received them on July 16, 2016. Thank You Holger for the beautiful stamps.  They postmarked even the two Ukrainean stamps related to Sevastopol too. 

This is my first airmail cover from Sevastopol sent by my good friend Yulia, The cover posted on August 10, 2014 and I received on 28 August 2014. You can see the first stamp from left  written as 'Sverdlovskaya Oblast' From Region of Russia series stamps issued in 2014 after annexed by Russia. I wish to collect all the regions from Russia in the similar ways with 'Regions of Russia' series stamps.
