    Default Ukrainian Armed forces museum

    This is a Soviet era musuem dedicated to the second world war. As with all Soviet era musuems no expense was spared to tell the party line. It is a very good musuem matching the best in the east. While I was there Soviet era afghan veterans were having a get together. They meet often here.
    The man I was with...Igor F.... was taken to Serbia to avoid Soviet military service by his mother. Serving the Soviets(Russians) was very undesirable for many.

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    Looks like a big museum.
    The pic of those shrapnel slivers really brings home how lethal they must have been.
    I wonder where the gorget and 'sunburst' decorations in the display case on top of the flag are from?
    Very interesting. Thanks for posting.
