FDC made in the Soviet Union. The text on the envelope reads:”To the 150th anniversary of the birth of Kharkiv, a monument to comrade Shevchenko”. Kharkiv is a city in the Urkaine. Taras Hryhorovych Shevchenko (1814-1861), also known as Kobzar Taras, or simply Kobzar, was a Ukrainian poet, writer, artist, public and political figure, as well as folklorist and ethnographer.
His literary heritage is regarded to be the foundation of modern Ukrainian literature and, to a large extent, the modern Ukrainian language, though the language of his poems was different from the modern Ukrainian language. Shevchenko is also known for many masterpieces as a painter and an illustrator.
