August 24, a postage stamp dedicated to the guerilla movement to be issued as part of the Way to Victory series

Guerilla warfare is an integral part of any long-lasting armed conflict. The guerilla movement, which swept the majority of civilians within the temporarily occupied territory during the Great Patriotic War, became a major part of the armed resistance of Soviet people to the Nazi invaders.

The partisan actions inflicted severe material damage upon the enemy, demoralized and contained the troops, disrupted weapon and food supplies, and destroyed the enemy army infrastructure.

The postage stamp features a bas-relief depicting partisans, which included the elderly, women and children.

Additionally, JSC “Marka” will manufacture a first day cover and postmark for Moscow.
