On January 7, 2023, the Primate of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine Epiphany held the Christmas service for the first time in the Assumption Cathedral of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, which ended with the performance of Ukrainian carols. This event was the restoration of historical justice, because the OCU is the legal successor of the ancient Kyiv Metropolitanate, which owned the shrine for more than 600 years since its foundation. In addition, the Ukrainian language has finally returned to one of the largest Christian centers of our country, which is a significant contribution to the preservation of the national and spiritual identity of every citizen. In honor of this achievement, and on the occasion of the 950th anniversary of the founding of the Dormition Cathedral, we present a new postal issue - "Ukrainian carols in the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra". The history of the temple, built in 1073–1078, is dramatic, because over the centuries it underwent significant changes. At the beginning of the 18th century, after a catastrophic fire, it was transformed into a Baroque one, and in 1941 it was destroyed by an explosion. And only in 2000, the cathedral was solemnly consecrated after a two-year reconstruction. The stories of the postal edition, created by the artist Mykolai Kochubei, tell about the unique history of the main Lavra Cathedral: from its foundation to its restoration, about the traditions of monasticism, which were established by monks Anthony and Theodosius of Pecherskyi, as well as about the return of the shrine after many years of occupation. The set includes the postal block "Ukrainian carols in the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra", cover  "First day. Ukrainian carols in the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra" and a postcard.
