The exhibitions were created by soldiers seeking to share their stories
A museum dedicated to the war in eastern Ukraine is now open in Dnipro. This unique establishment features replicas of the Donetsk airport, the village of Pisky and even recreations of several key battles using actual artifacts from the battlefield.
The broken-down bus stop, the shot-through ambulance, the burnt volunteer car, road signs - all a part of a recreation of Pisky, one of the hottest points in the war in Ukraine.
Ivan Nachovyi, Dnipro Region Government Advisor: "This is actually a piece from the Donetsk airport. You can see, how badly it's been destroyed. There's not one hole that's been hammered in, it's all bullets."
This museum was created by soldiers who lived through it all, and now they want to share their story with the masses.
In addition to the artifacts from the frontline, the exhibitions here include metal sculptures that aim to portray a certain feeling. What that feeling is - the visitors can decide for themselves, says Evhen Vasylevsky, a commander of the 72nd brigade of the Ukrainian Army.
Evhen Vasylevsky, Ukrainian soldier: "I personally, feel pain, pain for the friends that didn't come back from the battlefield but also joy that we didn't give up."
