"The team of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration has recently completed creating Ukraine's first ATO Museum. Its open-air exhibition focused on military hardware was opened in Dnipro City last spring. The display depicts soldiers, medics, army chaplains, volunteers and correspondents - all those who contributed to the defense of our homeland. The unique exhibit items including personal belongings, pictures, decorations and uniforms tell about their heroic deeds," Censor.NET quoted Chairman of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration Valentyn Reznichenko.
The new exhibition has been placed in three halls of Yavornytskyi historic museum. One of the halls hosts personal belongings of ATO participants, volunteers, medical workers, chaplains, and war correspondents, including ammunition, awards, instruments, children drawings, and clothes.
The second hall showcases photographs of killed heroes and their personal belongings, like favorite game of chess, a book, a postcard for mum, or a phone damaged by bullets.
The third is a multimedia hall, the first of this kind in the region. Two movies are shown there, each one no longer than 30 minutes. They are documentaries about the war in the east of Ukraine. The films are shown simultaneously at four walls of the hall, creating an effect of presence amid the fighting in the east of Ukraine.
The new exhibition will open its doors after Jan. 1, 2017.
