This year I managed to get to the museum aviation in Kiev. I have long wanted to go there (the museum has been open since 2003).
Impressions are only positive. The museum collection is impressive. But most importantly - you feel the power, the power of the once one of the strongest army in the world, the Soviet Army. An army that, whatever they said, could protect us from any enemy.
Now everything is in order.
