Mariupol, Ukraine

A Ukrainian cover from Mariupol in the Donetska region (the regional postmark is hard to make out on the second stamp from the right). The stamps on the right, postmarked with the first day postmark, were issued 24 April 2013 and are part of a set featuring tourist areas in Ukraine. The right-most stamp is Hang Palace in the town of Bakhchysarai and the stamp next to it is Ayu-Dag (Bear Mountain). Both places are in Crimea.

The two stamps on the left are more recent. The left most stamp commemorates 100 years since the birth of Ukrainian actress Maria Kapnist (who passed away in 1993) and the final stamp commemorates 20 years of Ukraine postal services.
