    “Today is a significant day for us, we are reviving the glorious tradition of propaganda trains. Today, our society needs us to remind everyone of the great deeds of the Russian army, our people, the losses that our people suffered, and what the country did for this victory, with such propaganda trains, with the expositions this train travels with.
    The right thing to do! It is impossible to educate the younger generation and patriotism, let it go by itself! No matter how our "liberals" and Western media shout that "patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels ...", by the way, the quote is not complete, but in the United States, patriotism is one of the pillars of the country. And no one there will be surprised by the raising of the flag of their country, near their home. This is what our "liberals" need to learn from them, and not all pseudo-democratic and pseudo-liberal ideas !!!

      (c) In the parking lots, everyone will be provided with free medical assistance by military specialists (c) Health care has completely been ruined, or are there wounded? Not for such a life the winners died. And agitation is good.

        I would like to hand out souvenirs or sell them inexpensively. Zhirinovsky’s train constantly distributes its party symbolism — pens, notebooks, T-shirts, caps. The people really like it.

    It should not be sent to Vladik, but to Kiev.
    With tranquilizers ...: "At the parking lots, all comers will be provided free medical assistance by military specialists."

    This means that a patriotic education is being revived here, completely ruined in the past years. I hope that taking into account old mistakes and mistakes. Let the wheels of this train to Vladivostok knock with success!

    But the movement of the "Victory Army" must be from east to west, and not vice versa.
    So more like a retreat. Although the idea itself is useful!

    No, that's right! The army of victory - after 9 of May 1945 of the year - was partially transferred to Manchuria, where it broke the Japanese! smile That's just the timing was wrong! we should have just begun the departure of 9 in May - and appointed arrival to surrender to Japan!

    And so - I don’t know how much money was allocated for this project, and I doubt its effectiveness, because in all major cities, an assortment of military equipment from the Great Patriotic War is constantly exhibited, and what is new about this train is not clear. In Soviet times, abandoned train trains even under Stalin.

    So explain what is a great idea besides the next cut of funds? I think you will be unpleasantly surprised to find out how much this train cost the budget.

    Children and adults will be interested in any large city where there are "Victory Parks" and expositions of armored and other equipment from the Second World War.

    In the end, even non-Muscovites can allow them to enter the tank museum in Kubinka near Moscow (one of the top three on the planet!) get out! or to the Air Force Museum! Well, as a last resort to the exposition on Poklonnaya Gora!
