The Russian Ministry of Defense showed the work of specialists from the 6th Central Courier and Postal Communication Center of the Russian Armed Forces, which sort and deliver mail to military personnel participating in a special military operation (SVO) from relatives.
“A unit has been formed and work has been organized to receive, process and send personal letters and parcels to their destination around the clock. Delivery of postal items to the areas of the special military operation is organized daily by aviation, rail and road courier-postal routes,” Lieutenant Colonel Denis Yurchenko, Head of the 6th Central Node of the FPS of the RF Armed Forces, told reporters.
Relatives and friends of the military personnel participating in the NWO, having written a letter or issued a parcel, hand them over for shipment to the nearest post office of the Russian Post.
“Personnel of the 6th Central Directorate of the FPS in the Moscow-400 postal department processes hundreds of letters daily addressed to servicemen performing tasks in the NVO area. In order to guarantee the delivery of letters to the addressees, I remind you that the relatives of military personnel can send their letters through the nearest branches of Russian Post JSC to the address: “index 103400, Moscow-400, five-digit number of the military unit, or military unit-field mail”, – said the head of the postal department of the 6th Central Node of the Federal Border Guard Service of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Captain Vladimir Kurbashnov.
Every day, FPS servicemen deliver about a thousand envelopes to military units.
If citizens do not know the number of the military unit, they should contact the employees of the military commissariat at the place of residence, they will provide this data as soon as possible. To do this, you need to know the last name, first name, patronymic of the soldier, his date of birth, and also by which military registration and enlistment office he was called up. You also need to have your passport with you. Outsiders will not be given information.
There is nothing more valuable than handwritten words of support from one’s home – everyone in the field of combat missions knows about it.
Military personnel also have the option to send personal letters home. To do this, each serviceman is provided with postal envelopes and stationery.
