Last week we started to show you the photographs from the big reconstruction devoted to the 69th anniversary of Kiev liberation from the fascist conquerers. Now you can see the second portion of the photos from the event. In autumn 1943 the troops of Wehrmacht, defending Kiev, managed to repel the advance of the Soviet troops twice. Their defence on the
right bank of the Dnieper was quite reliable and they still planned to change the course of the fighting and move back to the east.

These are the photos from the big military and historical reconstruction devoted to the 69th anniversary of Kiev liberation from the fascist conquerers. 800 people from more than ten countries took part in the event. They all travelled back to early November, 1943. In the field conditions, under the rain, appeared a camp
of the Red Army, some miles away, in trenches and dugouts, the Wehrmacht occupied its defensive positions. On the last day of the festival they made a reconstuction of the battle that took place on the third of November, 1943 right here. More than thirty units of military equipment were used.
