#259 Ukraine 10/01/15

Thank you, Anna, for this beautiful cover from Kiev!

The cover commemorates the Ukrainian ballet dancer Serge Lifar (Сергій Лифар; 1905-1986).

The left two stamps were issued on April 1, 2009, the right one on March 21, 2008. All three commemorate the 200th birthday of Nikolai Gogol (Никола́й/Мико́ла Го́голь; 1809-1852).
