Soviet stamp of Ukraine

This Soviet stamp featuring Ukraine was issued in 1991, the year the USSR collapsed and Ukraine declared its independence.

Despite heavy restrictions on religion, Christmas was celebrated in various capacities during Soviet years, as this depiction of a wintry Christmas scene in a Ukrainian village shows.

Vintage Christmas decorations from Soviet Ukraine can be found for sale now.
