>> 3.2 THE TRANSIT OF MAIL FROM OTHER COUNTRIES
The portal administrations of Poland and the USSR signed a treaty on 15 July 1925, which, amongst other things, provided for the exchange of parcels. However, the transit of parcels through Poland was not mentioned in the treaty and the Polish post did not officially accept this. Consequently the USSR had to send its parcels through Latvia to Poland, where they were regarded and handled as Latvian parcels. Parcels from Estonia were handled in the same way.
