Uralvagonzavod Corp. opened a new exhibition dedicated to plant workers who participated in local wars during the latter half of the 20th century, Ural Business Consulting said on Tuesday.
The exhibition, titled "For the Good of the Fatherland," includes approximately 200 exhibits.
The items were loaned by more than 40 war veterans and their families, the Nizhny Tagil Local War Veterans Museum and Special Operation Unit 12 from Ural Interior Troops.
“Many of these exhibits have left the veterans’ homes for the first time,” Ural Business Consulting said. “One of the showcases is devoted to those who took part in Afghanistan’s civil war and features pocket calendars with days on which a soldier was in combat crossed out. There are also decorations and personal photographs and belongings among the exhibits. An authentic crimson beret, an object of a special operations soldier’s pride, and a shell splinter that nearly injured (Uralvagonzavod’s Civil Defense and Emergency Assistant to Director-General) Andrei Mishin are also on display there.”
It has not been determined if the exhibit will be made permanent.
