The names of heroes Ulyana Gromova, Lyubov Shevtsova and Viktor Tretyakevich are closely related to the Young Guard.

The Young Guard was a Soviet underground anti-fascist Komsomol organization of young men and women that was active during the Great Patriotic War (from September 1942 to January 1943), mainly in the town of Krasnodon, Voroshilovgrad Region of the Ukrainian SSR.

The Organization was established soon after Krasnodon occupation by Nazi Germany, which started on July 20, 1942. The Young Guard numbered above 100 participants.

The members of the Young Guard posted leaflets, collected weapons, burned grain and poisoned food intended for the occupants. Careless actions of the members of the underground organization on capturing a New Year's convoy with gifts for the Nazis in December of 1942 led to vindictive actions. On January 1 of 1943, mass arrests began. Dozens of young underground fighters were killed after terrible tortures without betraying their Homeland.

In memory of the anti-fascist heroes, an obelisk was installed with the names of the murdered Young Guard members. Besides, The Young Guard novel by A. Fadeev is dedicated to the feat of the underground fighters of Krasnodon; feature and documentary films about them have been produced, and streets in many cities of Russia and the former USSR bear their names.

The commemorative postage stamp presents an image of the emblem of celebration of the 80th Anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941–1945; the main illustration features portraits of the Young Guard members: Heroes of the Soviet Union Ulyana Gromova, Lyubov Shevtsova, and the Hero of the Russian Federation Viktor Tretyakevich, who have their 100th Birth Anniversary this year.
