"This is museum's second project covering the war in Ukraine's east. The first one called 'Ukraine. The realities of modern warfare' consisted of ten exhibitions. For two and a half years, the museum staff has collected more than 4,000 authentic showpieces. Half of them will be displayed at the 'Ukrainian East' exhibition for the first time.

"The exhibition tells stories about combat operations carried out by various military units including volunteer battalions in the eastern Ukraine in 2014-2017. A part of the exhibition tells about chaplains, medics, volunteers, military journalists. There is also Foreign Legion display created as a token of gratitude to citizens of kin countries, such as Belarusians, Georgians, Chechens and others defending our homeland," the exhibition organizers said.
