Ukraine became a member of the Universal Postal Union and Soviet Post in 1947, making the official founding year of Ukraine’s postal service the same year. However, Ukraine did not have a postal service separate from the rest of the Soviet Union until 1991 and Ukrposhta did not exist in its current form until 1994. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, Ukrposhta has grown to handle all of Ukraine’s postal needs and ship to over 200 countries. They ship everything from personal packages to commercial packages both domestically and internationally.
