How low can you go?

The other day I received an envelope from Armenia. There was a quite large $2 stamp on it. Intrigued, I looked to see what it was and it turns out it is an Armenian stamp commemorating the cemetery for Russian army officers in Gyumry in the 1800-s.

Mind you, the Russian army was there to serve the colonial interests of Tsarist Russia. Then it became the Soviet Red Army. Now, the same colonial army is still based in Gyumry.

I cannot understand what the Armenian Post thinks when they come up with stamps commemorating the invaders and colonizers. Don't they feel ashamed?
