Russian Astronaut Alexey Leonov and Voskhod 2

ВО ИМЯ МИРА И ПРоГРЕССА!
(Peace and Progress!)

The back is written in Russian and in English.  The English words are:

In the Name of Peace and Progress!
1965

The sender writes that Voskhod 2 was a Soviet manned space mission March (18th-19th) 1965.  It established another milestone in space exploration when Alexey Leonov became the first person to leave the spacecraft in a specialized spacesuit to conduct a 12 minute 'Spacewalk'.

This is a reproduction postcard that is postmarked in 2015 with two stamps from Russia.
