This joint postal stamp, due to come out June 3, 2004, will be devoted to 21st century German-Russian youth contacts, ministerial officials noted.
One stamp will cost 55 euro cents; meanwhile its sketch will be unveiled exactly six weeks prior to the official date of issue (in line with German regulations).
Moscow hosted the Russian-German youth forum in May 2002 under the auspices of Lyudmila Putin and Doris Schroeder-Kepf; that forum involved more than 300 young Russians and Germans.
A jury held its session in Moscow this past October, choosing several postal-stamp sketches, which were received from Germany and different Russian cities.
The stamp sketch was finalized by Moscow's graphic artist Alexander Ozolin, reports the German Finance Ministry.
