EUROPA 2020: Ancient Postal Routes

Wikipedia: EUROPA 2020: Ancient Postal Routes
The Europa postage stamp (also known as Europa - CEPT until 1992) is an annual joint issue of stamps with a common design or theme by postal administrations of member countries of the European Communities (1956–1959), the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) from 1960 to 1992, and the PostEurop Association since 1993. Europe is the central theme. EUROPA stamps underlines cooperation in the posts domain, taking into account promotion of philately. They also build awareness of the common roots, culture and history of Europe and its common goals. As such, EUROPA stamp issues are among the most collected and most popular stamps in the world. Since the first issue in 1956, EUROPA stamps have been a tangible symbol of Europe's desire for closer integration and cooperation.  Read more..

After several months of interruption for various reasons (change in the management of the Post of Moldova, Covid-19 epidemic, change of printing house ...), new stamps were issued in Moldova on August 17, 2020, more precisely a very nice series (2 stamps) issued within the framework of the EUROPA series, devoted this year to the ancient postal routes ("rute poștale vechi" in Romanian)..

A moratorium on the release of new postage stamps by the Republic of Moldova began on January 28, 2020. This decision was made following change of leadership at Posta Moldovei which also resulted in the loss of all personnel from the Philatelic Editorial Section of the organization and the abandonment of the National Philatelic Plan for 2020. Following months of protests, new philatelic material began to appear again, although in vastly reduced quantities. A new print house was appointed but lacking experienced people in the field of philatelic printing. Consequently, the quality of the material suffered badly. This EUROPA release appeared on August 17. Initial printed quantities were exhausted on the first day of release and additional materials were printed subsequently. Slight colour variations can be seen between the first print run and the second but there is insufficient differentiation to justify separate variety types in the catalogue.
