Dear Sir/Madam

The postal administration of UKRAINE asks me to inform you that postage stamps of the fraudulent issue entitled 'Ukrainian Antarctic Post' are appearing on the market.

As the postal administration of Ukraine never issued such postage stamps in the period from 1992 to 1999, it asks me to inform you that all postage stamps bearing that imprint are illegal and cannot be accepted as a means of postal prepayment.

Yours faithfully,

C GHEORGHIEV
Assistant Drector-General

bearing the words "Crimea. Ukraine" and printed in small sheets of six stamps with a face value of 30 kopeks.
