UKRAINE – USEP “Ukrposhta”
On foot, with a bag over his shoulder, any time of the year, in any weather and any circumstances – he certainly crossed the moutain path every day, almost 60 kilometers to Uzhgorod and back. Fedir Feketa, a native of the Transcarpathian Turia Remeta, a legendary figure and postman – has been delivering mail for thirty years. He has become a true symbol of “friendliness, sobriety, honesty and obedience”. Initially, in the 19th century on the facade of the local church appeared a plaque with a bas-relief of the village postman. And in 2003 a monument in the Transcarpathian district of Perechyn was built in his honour.
