About the stamps
The first two stamps are part of a series dedicated to Russian Kremlins, about which I wrote here.
The second stamp, designed by A. Fedulov and depicting the Russian Science Station Mirny, located on the Antarctic coast of the Davis Sea in the Australian Antarctic Territory, was issued on January 26, 2006, to mark the 50th Anniversary of Russian Antarctic Exploration.
The last stamp is a thematic stamp for the New Year 2011, about which I wrote here.
