It is not common to be able to determine exactly the name of the person who introduced a new word to the English lexicon, even less so when the person is not from the English-speaking world. The word "robot", in its most common usage - a mechanical man - entered the language as a result of the play R U R, which stands for Rossum's Universal Robots, first staged around 1920. The author was Czech writer Karel Capek. (the letter C in the name Capek, has a diacritical mark, a tiny "v" above the letter which results in it having a ch sound, so the name is pronounced roughly like "Chop-eck"). In addition to plays he wrote novels, essays, travel guides and children's stories. He even wrote about stamps: his story The Stamp Collection, re-issued in the collection Tales From Two Pockets is available on the website csphilately.net It is a very poignant tale about a life squandered through bitterness. Here are two Czech stamps depicting him. The first one was issued when the country was still called Czechoslovakia and reflects his love of gardening (one of is books was The Gardener's Year)and the other more recent one was issued after the break-up into two separate countries: The Czech Republic (this stamp) and Slovakia.

the word ROBOT in Slavic languages comes from the word WORK and means WORKER. Such an robot-worker FEDOR recently flew to the ISS

It's FAKE. Ukraine did not issue such a postage stamp.

This service provided by Ukrposhta has no relation to postage stamps. This is just a souvenir.

Private issues of postage stamps from the official postal administration of the country are real signs of payment mail. As a collection material, they are of disputed importance (I personally do not collect it), although in my collection there are letters with such stamps that have actually passed international mail.If you need translation, I can help you read the official website of Ukrochta

https://ukrposhta.ua/vlasna-poshtova-marka/

the inscription on the site means: It's special real stamp, which you can not only admire but also pay for the written correspondence
