The creation of the Filintern was set up at a conference in Moscow in 22 to 30 June 1924. Its formation was greeted by all branches of the All-Russian Society of Philatelists and at the same time by the Soviet Esperantists. At the conference opening, Feodor Chuchin, Commissioner for Philately and Scripophily, declared:
|“||Within the Filintern and through it we will not only adhere to all the rules of international philatelic ethics but also watch to make sure others uphold them.||”|
A program for the Filintern's central organ was developed that included:
- "propaganda of the international union of philatelist-workers of all nations for the struggle against organised philatelist-dealers",
- "wide popularisation of ideological philately",
- "introducing Esperanto into philately and thus the establishment of lively communication between philatelists around the world."
Filintern facilitates the goals of philatelists, scripophilists[d] and Esperantists. Within Filintern, they could:
- collect stamps and paper money,
- publish philatelic bulletins, journals and catalogues,
- most importantly, conduct foreign exchange.
The Philatelic International's organ was the journal Esperanto: Radio de Filintern. Its Editor was a prominent Russian philatelist L. K. Eichfuss. The first issue of the journal appeared in January 1925.
