Russia 1986 issue, Scott's Cat. # 5446 & 5521, Commemoratives honoring Ernst Thalmann, and Alexander Yakovlevich Parkhomenko.
These are nice looking mint stamps that are post office fresh and never been hinged.
Depicted on these stamps:
5 Kopeks:Alexander Parkhomenko of National Research University Higher School of Economics (professor?), Moscow with expertise in Industrial Organization.
10 Kopeks:Ernst Thalmann (1886 â 1944) was the leader of the Communist Party of Germany (KPD) during much of the Weimar Republic. He was arrested by the Gestapo in 1933 and held in solitary confinement for eleven years, before being shot in Buchenwald on Adolf Hitler's orders in 1944. During the Spanish Civil War, several units of German republican volunteers (most notably the Thalmann Battalion of the International Brigades) were named in his honour.
Born in Hamburg, Thalmann was a Social Democratic Party member from 1903. Between 1904 and 1913 he worked as a stoker on a freighter. He was discharged early from his military service as he was seen as a political agitator.
