"Aunus" is the Finnish name for the Russian town of Olonets. Finnish troops occupied the town in April 1919. Finnish stamps cancelled "OLONETS" were first used and then the overprints. Although Russians took back the town after a few weeks, the stamps continued to be used in the area until October 1919.
FICC Journal v26n1p4 reported that from 2015, following the Scott catalogue's move of the Postgebeit Ob. Ost overprint German occupation stamps from Lituanua to Russia, this issue has been renumbered from Russia N1-N8 to Russia N13-N20. The Ostland and Ukraine occupation issues have also been affected.
