cover from Russia

Yesterday I got not only a postcard from Germany but also a cover from Russia.

International Children’s Centre “Artek” (issued 16-06-2015)
Russian Kremlins (from set of twelve) (issued 01-10-2009)

Inside were a maxicard and many mint Russian stamps.
The maxicard shows the logo of the Russian Post. The stamp was issued on 23rd July 2015.

One stamp set from the cover is about the Centenary of World War I. The four stamps (issued 03-08-2015) show men who were awarded the St George’s Cross, the highest military award in the Russian Empire. The featured men are Konstantin Iosifovich Nedorubov, Ivan Vladimirovich Tyulenev, Nikolai Ivanovich Ulanov and Ivan Lukich Kizhnyak.
The other stamps you can see here.

Thank You very much Nikolay!
