Tatarstan gave birth first real "Russian locals"


Post War came second mounth between Mail Service of Russian Federation and Tatarstan (Region of Russia).
Below - article by www.kommersant.com
as of Sep. 06, 2005"Co

Tatarstan Secures a Grip on the Mail Service
Tatarstan’s decision to independently privatize its mail service – the state-run Tatarstan Pochtasy – was rebuffed by the federal authorities of Russia. The officials obviously fear that the telecom privatization scenario will play again. In the mid-1990s, lots of telephone offices were made private locally with no way to include them to the state-run Svyazinvest later on.
Tatarstan Pochtasy (Mail of Tatarstan) is the republic operator of mail service that unites around 1,100 branches located in Tatarstan. 2004 revenues reached 290 million rubles.

Tatarstan’s authorities sealed the program for the company’s privatization on June 28, 2005. As decided, the state-run Tatarstan Pochtasy will be reorganized into a joint stock company of similar name with all assets of the state-run predecessor transferred respectively. But under the Federal Mail Service Restructuring Concept passed by the RF Cabinet in 2003, all mail offices of Russia are to become affiliates of the federally-run Mail of Russia.

"Tatarstan Pochtasy’s privatization ruins integrity of the national postal territory. We won’t put up with this situation and intend to go to law to annul the decision,” said Andrey Beskorovainy, head of the Federal Communication Agency of Russia (Rossvyaz).

In Russia’s Communications Ministry, they said Monday that privatization of the mail service of Tatarstan violates a raft of Russian laws. According to Mikhail Yakushev, head of the legal department at Communications Ministry of Russia, Tatarstan Pochtasy has breached the Act on the Mail Service and the Act on Communications.

Tatarstan Pochtasy declined to comment Monday.

The experts say by going to law against Tatarstan, the Russian Mail Service attempts to prevent decentralized privatization of the regional mail service. Similar scenario was applied in the mid.-1990s, in time of telecom privatization carried out in Tatarstan and in some other regions, including Moscow, Bashkortostan, Tyumen Region. At that time, most of the regional telecom operators merged into Svyazinvest holding, where the government of Russia owns 75 percent less a stock. In Tatarstan, all 100 percent of Tattelecom went to stock capital of Svyazinvestneftekhim holding, which is close to the ruling elite of Tatarstan. Though Tattelecom privatization has been never publicly voiced, the announcement could be expected at any time, some market players are sure.
***************

And now, "Tatarstan Pochtasy" used by 01/12 postal covers with special marks, which will use for postal circulation in inside Tatarstan. It will have cost 4-70 (4 rubl 70 kopeek) against all-Russian7-10. (It is cost cover "euro" (220 x 110 mm) with stamp tarif 5-60).

Here is an article saying that Tatarstan will be using envelopes different from those of Russia because of the "refusal by Pochta Rossii to accept and deliver mails stamped by Tatarstan pochtasy as of 1 November."

There should be some interesting modern postal stationery coming out of Tatarstan - mail refused by the Russian Post as well as local mail used within Tatarstan.

Is there any information concerning the U.P.U. recognizing Tatarstan's status on these for international usage?

Dear colleagues ! Please take notice at some points.
1) This covers published "Tatarstan Pochtasy". (Apropos, its was printed in “Gosznak”). At date, when its was put on sale this “TP” was private company. Therefore, Tatarstan (as Russian region) don’t bear relation to this formally. At real, of course, Tatarstan officials behind back this history.
2) This covers may use only inside Tatarstan.
3) Of course, it is no legality issue.
4) BUT ! This covers will have real post use inside Tatarstan. Therefore, it is real post material. And, for me, all what is post – is philately.
Sorry, write by English very difficult for me, but I’ll try describe this situation as I know it.
In the meantime I don’t see this covers and don’t know as it look.

Your English is fine!
If and when you obtain such a cover, would you share it with us?
I am sure it would be a welcomed addition to this board.

At my since first cover - "no clean". It is from Derbyshki to Kazan, but postmarks is - Kazan. I asked real covers (mail of organizations, example), but don't see scans for the present.

Fascinating modern postal history covers.

What is the "0037877" added to the cover? There seems to be an blank area reservered for it on both covers.

I notice that the postmark is ПОЧТА РОССИЯ even though it was serviced by Tatarstan Pochtasy.

All covers in first issue was numbered. As numbered blocks. As say, in second issue, want did too, but refused.
Of couse, it is use postmarks "ПОЧТА РОССИЯ" - therefore "Tatarstan Pochtasy" don't edit stamps with TATARSTAN and etc.
Position "Tatarstan Pochtasy" - we part of " Pochta Rossii", only private (they belong "TatTeleCom", which belong Shaimiev famely). It is not political project - it is purely business "by russian administration resources".
