Few know that on Poklonnaya Gora of Moscow there are two nice museums. Let’s see what they exhibit.

The museum under the open sky.


And the Central museum of WWII that was opened in 1995.

“Shield and sword of Victory” were made by gunsmiths from Zlatoust from bronze and steel. The items are also decorated with brass and velvet, aquamarines, amethysts, topazes, tourmalines, citrines. Weight of the shield – 18 kg, of the sword – 27 kg.

Different exhibitions and other events are often held in the museum. Here a couple can even get married, maybe oaths made here will be more durable…

    why do russia to buy france amphibious assault ship?
    why is france selling amphibious assault ships to russia?

    • Chac Mool says:

      Why not?

    • vorontsevich says:

      Theres no reason not to buy the Mistrals. Russia doesn’t have any designs of its own for such a ship, the French do, and the Mistrals are very good. Most Russian shipyards are still only recovering from the 90’s, and I think the French would welcome new orders. It’s a win-win situation.

    Is the Katyn massacre depicted in the museum? This atrocity should be remembered.

    • Chac Mool says:

      It is remembered. What is forgotten by some is that neither France os the UK declared war against the Soviet Union; only against Germany… There was this Treaty to defend Poland, but, well, that was not so important…

      Remember Babi Yar first. Then you can lecture about whatever you want.
      Google it, if you don’t know what it is.

    One scene is (as usual) missing – how soviet invasion to Europe was stopped on Rhine river with amrican army and atomic bomb. Even 5 milions Red army soldiers were nothing against nuclear weapons. Result? Economic collapse of SSSR 40 years later. Cimmunism cannot succeed with capitallims in other contries, even Stalin know that….

    • Osip says:

      Europe war was finished more than two months prior to USA even first testing the atomic bomb. The bomb played no part in Europe.

    • Chac Mool says:

      @ptc: It seems you would’ve been very comfortable with the Nazi regime exterminating all Slavs.

    • vorontsevich says:


      Your hatred and/or fear of Soviets/Russians is outright comical. Tell me, how would a dozen nuclear bombs stop an army of not 5 million, but actually 12 million men, plus the worlds largest tank force and masses of artillery, vehicles, firearms and aircraft. The nuclear bombs of the late 1940’s had no real military-tactical value. It’s not like whole Soviet divisions were grouped together within the general kill radius of a nuclear bomb. It was only later with tactical warheads and thermo-nuclear weapons that conventional forces would actually be threatened.

      Instead of blindly displaying your Russophobia, be thankful that Stalin in one of his mad whims, didn’t go ahead with his plans of world conquest.

      @ PTC

      Your view of history is very suspect. The Soviet
      Army stopped where they were supposed to, this was arranged prior to the end of the war.

      I suppose you don’t know about the meetings between Stalin, Roosevelt, and Churchill.

      Just be glad that Germany was not treated the way some of the other European leaders wished to treat Germany. There were serious discussions of totally destroying and then preventing ANY industry to be formed in Germany. These plans came up immediately after WW I and were brought up again after WW II.

      • Kent of Sweden says:

        Actually, the idea of “deindustializing” Germany after WWII were originally american, and to some extent supported by FDR. They were finally killed by British opposition. Number one in objecting to these plans were Winston Churchill who wanted Germany rebuilt and rearmed as soon as possible to take part in another war – this time against the USSR. Luckily (for all of us) neither one got what they wished for

    Whats the name/Type of the Gun on the rail-roads?

    I find the evil “muppet” versions of Hitler/Schicklegruber and Mussolini to be quite amusing.
