Articles in English and Russian
 
Foreign authors and members abroad contribute very often to our journal "DZRP". These articles are written in English or Russian and translated by the members of the editorial team into German, in order to be printed. As we think that this translation is a loss for our foreign members, we will present these articles in their original language here on our homepage.
 
Erfreulicherweise werden in nahezu jeder Ausgabe des Mitteilungsheftes der ArGe Russland/UdSSR  auch Beiträge und Artikel von ausländischen Autoren und Philatelisten zu unserem Sammelgebiet Russland veröffentlicht.  Diese Beiträge sind überwiegend in englisch oder russisch verfaßt und werden zur Veröffentlichung in der DZRP ins Deutsche übersetzt.
Beginnend mit Heft 88 vom Mai 2008 werden wir diese fremdsprachlichen Beiträge in ihrer Originalsprache hier auf unserer Homepage einstellen. Damit bieten wir auch den Philatelisten, die kein Deutsch beherrschen, die Gelegenheit, diese doch recht interessanten Beiträge zu lesen.




Article in English
 

THE BORDER POSTAGE OF 1½ PRUSSIAN GROSCHEN
In the period 1822-1844 this border postage is simple and well described in article VI in the 1821 postal convention between Russia and Prussia: “Until now only letters to and from the governments Courland, Livonia and Estonia have been charged – besides the normal foreign shares – by the Immersatt border postage of 1½ Prussian Groschen per Loth. From now on this border postage is charged on all letters to and from the Russian Empire. The amount is paid to the (Prussian) post office in Memel for speeding up the Russian Mails twice a week (by establishing new posts): One post from Memel to Berlin and one post from Berlin to Memel and further to Polangen. The Immersatt border postage is charged even on letters travelling the short distance between Memel and Polangen.”

POSTCARD MAIL IN THE YEARS OF REVOLUTION, CIVIL WAR, AND INFLATION IN RUSSIA
(1917 - 1923)
A rise of collectors’ interest to postcards as a kind of mail is observed nowadays. This is evidenced also by articles on this topic recently published. This paper dealing with a very complicated and stormy period of Russian history is considering this subject on examples of such mail assorted by the postal rates in effect in various regions of the former Empire under different administrations struggling against each other during the Civil War. Selecting the examples, I tried to show as much as possible the use of different basic postcards (stamped PS, official and other formula cards, also picture postcards but in a lesser degree) as well as peculiarities of their use. All these examples are from the present author’s collection if not otherwise stated.

MORE ABOUT THE LOCAL TARIFF AUTONOMIES
(1920-1923)
 
The article by Wolfgang Leupold published recently in DZRP raised an interesting but still unresolved problem called by him "local tariff autonomy" at a particular locality. It seems, however, that this problem should be considered and discussed in a much wider aspect. It turns out that the same unusual rate was applied in rather large territory as it will be shown further in this article. But there are found on mail in 1920-1923 much more examples of franking that did not match the tariffs officially proclaimed by the Central Postal Administration. The article describes and shows at lot of examples.

MAIL OF RUSSIAN PRISONERS OF WAR IN NORWAY IN WW I
In the spring of 1916 Denmark, Norway, and Sweden started negotiations about internment of sick and wounded Prisoners of War (so called semi-invalid POWs) from Russia, Germany, and Austria-Hungary. This article will cover the Russian POWs in Norway. A total of 600 prisoners were interned in Norway. In general the postage for POW mail between Norway and their home country was free of charge, but it is unknown if the mail inside Norway or other countries was free. The Russian POWs were located in 10 places. These were Espen, Fossegården, Grytting, Heggerud, Holmgaard, Hunder, Konnerudkollen, Losnaos, Myre, and Ring Pensionat. Mail correspondence from all these camps is rare [1]. This article will present letters from Konnerudkollen, Ring Pension, and Espen and the typical signs of recognition.

The Postal History of the Åland Islands
during the Russian period
 
The Postal History of the Åland Islands should be of interest to collectors of Russian postal history. From the war between Sweden and Russia in 1808-1809 until 1917 the Åland Islands were a part of The Grand Duchy of Finland, and consequently a part of the Russian Empire.
This article will put together information dealing with important aspects of the postal history of the Åland Islands.

Private and official perfins in postage stamps of Imperial Russia
 
As the use of postage stamps increased, the problem of protecting stamps from theft, for both the postal   authorities and the large commercial houses increased proportionately. Stamps were removed from the mail in transit by dishonest postal clerks and were stolen by employees from large firms either for resale or for personal use.

MAIL FROM RUSSIA TO CENTRAL POWERS IN 1918
 
The direct postal connections between Russia and Central Powers (Germany, Austro-Hungary) were broken at the beginning of August 1914 when they became enemies in the WW1 started at that time. The only exception was the correspondence of POWs which took place through the instrumentality of Red Cross via neutral countries. The regular connections were resumed only 3 months after the withdrawal of Russia from the WW1 when the Bolshevik's Government that had come to power on 7 November 1917 concluded the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk on 3 March 1918.
