It would seem that in the age of modern information technologies, the services of ordinary mail will become a thing of the past. But people still write letters. And many organizations require sending them letters only by Russian Post. At the same time, letters must be registered. That is, the delivery of such a letter is guaranteed. It happens that letters do not reach the addressee, are lost, disappear.
It is best to use the "registered with return notification" service when sending a letter. The notification will not add much to the cost of sending. At the same time, if the letter is sent without notification, then a notice is simply thrown into the addressee's mailbox that a letter is awaiting him from Post Office N, as well as a request to appear and receive it.
If the letter is sent with return notification, it will be handed over to the recipient personally. They will ask you to sign the receipt of return, and then send the notice to you.
When sending a letter, you will be sure to be handed a check, which will indicate a unique identification number of the postal item (domestic or international). Don't lose your check until the letter reaches the addressee. Better yet, notify the recipient of the letter right away. If you are the recipient, then ask to send you information about the identifier. Information about the identifier is tracked at each stage of forwarding a letter: sending, delivery, sorting, issuing to the addressee, etc. Usually information is entered either in real time or with a delay of several hours.
The unique identification number of the postal item is also indicated on the letter (parcel).
If a registered letter or a registered letter with a return notification still did not reach the addressee, you need to go to the website of the Russian Post in the section "Postal services - Tracking postal items" (https://xn----7sbza0acdlkaf3d.xn--p1ai/rp/servise/ru/home/postuslug/track …)
In the column "Postal identifier" enter the identification number indicated on the check. The number should be entered without brackets or spaces.
