Russia Post is off to a strong start with six stamps, four prepaid stamped envelopes, and one postal card scheduled for release in January 2022.  The website and Facebook page of Marka (Акционерное общество Марка) are excellent sources of New Issue information with nice images of most items. However, ordering through the official online shop (which is located in Austria) leaves a bit to be desired as the most recent issues are not always listed.
