Destroyed Russian artillery displayed in Prague
Russian military equipment captured by the Ukrainian Armed Forces has gone on display in the Czech capital, Prague. Destroyed armor from the battlefields of Ukraine is being exhibited in the Czech capital after a similar display in Warsaw was organized by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. The Prague exhibition will run until July 24, 2022.
“With this exhibition we hope to show once again the horrors of war that Russia’s aggression has brought to Ukraine,” Ukrainian embassy spokeswoman Tetiana Okopna told Czech Television.
“But we also want to show how Czech weapons are being used,” she went on, adding that a similar exhibition was being launched in Warsaw, with others planned for Germany and the Netherlands.
The Czech Republic was the first country to send tanks to Ukraine: T-72 main battle tanks from the Czech Army’s active reserves. It has since sent more heavy weapons, including Mi-24 helicopters.
