Representatives of Ukraine’s largest state-run defense enterprise “Ukroboronprom” and Kyiv tank factory will pass the Museum a BTR-3, the IFV that was used during the ongoing military actions in eastern Ukraine. 'The Museum presents over 100 units of military vehicles and firearms that were used in the WWII and other military conflicts of the past century. But currently, many visitors turn attention to the modern vehicles and weaponry used during fights in eastern Ukraine. It particularly includes Russian heavy weaponry, which Ukrainian troops captured in 2014 near Dobropillya, Sloviansk and Debaltseve in Donetsk region. These guns and vehicles were handed over to the Museum in 2015; they serve as evidence of our neighbor’s military aggression. It’s the first time when the museum accepts the modern vehicle that is in use by Ukraine’s Armed Forces', the Museum’s press service reported.
The handling ceremony will take place in Kyiv on Thursday, June 3. Soldiers of the National Guard and military units participating in military actions in Donbas will be present there.
