On February 24, 2022, Kharkiv Oblast was the first, along with other regions bordering Russia, to meet the invaders not with flowers and hugs, but with weapons and fury: Kharkiv residents selflessly defended the city, and in the enemy-occupied territories of the region, local residents and soldiers desperately resisted the invader. And already in September 2022, the Armed Forces of Ukraine liberated almost the entire region from the occupiers with rapid counterattacks. Kharkiv Oblast survived thanks to the courage of the military and ordinary people.
Thanks to those who laid evacuation routes, who shot down a Russian attack aircraft over the sky of Kharkiv, who saved a priceless museum exhibit, who with their resistance and courage helped liberate their native land. Slobodan patriots have shown an example of stability and indomitability and continue to defend themselves against the aggressor's attacks.
The postal issue is dedicated to the Hero cities of Kharkiv region: Balaklia, Izyum, Kupyansk, Kharkiv. You help Ukrainians resist Russian aggression. Thank you very much for your help!
