OFFICIAL Card - Russia

I received this map of Russia from Katya last Friday. She tells me her city - Voronezh, population 1.8 million - is not on the map. It is located between Kursk and Volgograd in the eastern part of the country. I find that mind boggling that it wouldn't be on - you figure in Canada that would be the 4th largest city. Amazing! The card also shows the Russian coat of arms and a loose interpretation of the Russian flag in the background stripes. The stamps too are new to me. They are also huge - almost 3 inches!
