World War II Museum in Kyiv Tour
Due to its geopolitical and geostrategic position, Ukraine was one of the main springboards of the Eastern front in the Second World War. During the war were mobilized nearly 7 million Ukrainians, representing 23% of the personnel of the Soviet Army Forces. The tragedy touched almost every Ukrainian family.
Ukrainian marshals and generals led almost half of the 15 fronts, including about 300 generals of the war. A striking irreversible loss of Ukraine by some estimates amounts to 14 million people.
