UK > Russia/Belarus mails

So you’re almost 1/3. I suspect it’ll be similar for most of us, and will continue to be until the world’s political situation changes and all major countries can send to Russia and Belarus again.

I’m on 7 out of 13, I drew two addresses this morning (it was 7 out of 11) and sighed with relief when I got Germany & the US

I saw on the main ‘Are your cards reaching…’ thread someone from Turkey had more than half of her travelling cards going to RU, so it would seem it’s not just us x

GB-1762162 was registered by its recipient in Belarus earlier today, with a travel time of 35 days. The current average travel time for my postcards to folks in Belarus is 28 days, so not too bad.

RU-9985122

I just received this card from Russia after 148 days travelling! The cancellation seems to read 11th June so I think it has been sitting around in Russia for quite a while.

Yup, fits into the picture of what the Russian Postcrossing community has observed lately and described / reported. :wink:

In spite of a tiny trickle of my cards arriving in Belarus and Russia, my figures, out of 137 travelling, are:
Belarus 14 (4 expired)
China 18 (10)
Russia 48 (13)
Taiwan 5 (3).

So 35% of my travelling cards have been sent to Russia.

Just in case it’s any help, these are the timings for my most recent sent postcards to Russia:

This year, I also have 3 expired sent to Russia. They were sent in January, March and May.

For 2024 to date, my median time to Russia is 42 days.

I have one travelling at 43 days. I have 2 expired from last year, but one recipient seems to have stopped PC.

I send far fewer than @Florallle, but the stats seem similar.
