Guinea issuing a stamp with Milinkevich’s image

The stamps block is dedicated to the winners of the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize FOR FREEDOM OF THOUGHT that was awarded to Alaksandr Milinkevich in 2006.

In fact, the only present-day Belarusian opposition politician represented in philately is Alaksandr Milinkevich, notes Tvoy Styl. Guinea printed an issue of stamps with the image of the Movement For Freedom (MFF)’s leader back in 2007.

The European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize FOR FREEDOM OF THOUGHT was founded by the European Parliament in 1988 and is awarded annually for “achievements in protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms, as well as for respect for the international law, and for democracy promotion”. Previously, the Belarusian Association of Journalists was awarded the Sakharov Prize in 2004.

Historically, opposition politicians and revolutionaries usually issued stamps with their images illegally, for propagandist purposes (e.g., Ichkeria stamps in the early 1990 with the image of general Dudaev and imam Shamil).

In this case, the stamp product with the face of the Belarusian ex-presidential candidate was printed completely legally by the former French colony Guinea. Up till now, the only present-day Belarusian politician on stamps was Lukashenka who published his portrait as early as in 1996.
