Georgy Beregovoi stamp from Ukraine

The Ukrainian Post has issued a stamp commemorating the legendary Soviet cosmonaut with Ukrainian roots Georgy Beregovoi.

Georgy Timofeyevich Beregovoy commanded the space mission Soyuz 3 in 1968. At the time of his flight, Beregovoy was 47 years old: he was the oldest human to go into space (by date of birth, not by age during flight), three months and three days older than the second earliest-born astronaut, American John Glenn.
