When the exhibition first opened on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Independence of Ukraine, it consisted of only several exhibit items. However, the great hall of the museum is currently filled with rare objects brought from the area of holding anti-terrorist operation.
“When the first warriors (our countrymen), who were killed for the sake of liberty and independence of Ukraine, appeared, we placed photos of these perished servicemen and their short biographies in this museum exposition. In such a way we paid respect to them. Through the support of our servicemen and Sumy Regional Military Commissariat, we have transformed this exposition”, - Director of Sumy Regional Museum of Local Lore, History and Economy Vladyslav Terentiev noted.
Along with the exhibit items which depict the deeds of Sumy artillery men and infantry men, there are materials about reconnaissance men.
In the future, museum employees will expand the exposition with the assistance of servicemen, volunteers and local inhabitants because the memory about our heroes – defenders of Ukraine must be eternal.
