Another 2020 Ukraine Lighthouse mini-sheet

On 20 August 2020 Ukraine issued a mini-sheet of four stamps “The beauty and grandeur of Ukraine. Kherson region”. The stamp at the upper left of the sheet depicts Dzharylhach Lighthouse. This light was established in 1902 and was later replaced by another one that is currently active.
