Formerly a Socialist Republic of RUSSIA, located in northeastern Europe and northern Asia.
Came into existence on November 7th, 1917 as a result of the October Revolution,
first as the Soviet Federated Socialist Republic and since 1922, following a merger
with the UKRAINE, BELARUS (WHITE RUSSIA) and TRANSCAUCASIAN FEDERATION,
known as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
In 1935 the Transcaucasian Federation came apart and three independent Republics
were established as Republics of the Soviet Union - ARMENIA, AZERBAIJAN and GEORGIA.
In 1940 the Baltic states - ESTONIA, LATVIA (LETTLAND) and LITHUANIA (LIETUVA) also became
Republics of the Soviet Union. In December 1991 the USSR splintered into 15 independent
Republics, six new stamps issuing entities came to existence: MOLDOVA, KAZAKHSTAN,
KYRGYZSTAN, TAJIKISTAN, TURKMENISTAN and UZBEKISTAN.
Many unofficial new Republics appeared in the Philatelic market see RUSSIAN REPUBLICS (Private),
All these private issues have no Philatelic value.
First stamps issued in 1918. Direct UPU membership since June 24th, 1924.
All stamps appear in Cyrillic script, meaning 'Rossia', 'Post', 'RSFSR' and 'Post SSSR'.
