UkrPoshta to release postal stamp dedicated to Kalush Orchestra
Ukrposhta, the state-run postal operator of Ukraine, will issue a stamp dedicated to the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, Kalush Orchestra.
That's according to Ihor Smilyanskyi, Ukrposhta CEO.
"We congratulate Kalush on winning Eurovision. You're awesome! Ukrposhta issues stamps in accordance with the decision of our Art Council. But I think I will have enough arguments to approve and speed up the issue of the stamp dedicated to our winners. Just like we did with Ruslana and Jamala," he wrote.
Smilyansky added that the design of the stamp will be agreed separately, after coordination with Eurovision. "If we want to go to Europe, we need to respect intellectual property rights," he said.
The CEO presented one of the options for the future stamp and reminded of the popular vote that is ongoing for the stamp design in the Diia app, on the company's Facebook page, and on his personal Telegram channel.
"There is an undisputed leader so far, but there are still 5 days to determine the winner. Meanwhile, Kalush will proceed beyond competition," he stressed.
