cover from Russia

On Thursday I got not only two postcards but also a cover from Russia.

Uniform Jackets of the Russian Diplomatic Service (from set of four) (issued 20-12-2016)
Russian Federation in the Council of Europe (issued 26-02-2016)

Inside was a Russian stamp about Andrei Karlov. Andrei Karlov was a Soviet and Russian career diplomat. He served as an official in the embassies in North and South Korea, before he became Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Turkey in 2013. On 19 December 2016 Karlov was assassinated during the opening of an art exhibition in Ankara. After his death he was awarded the title of a Hero of the Russian Federation. The stamp was issued on 10th February 2017.

Thank You very much Kira!
