A new exhibit at the National War Museum, “Threat from the Sky,” features a Russian drone handed over by Valery Zaluzhny, Ukraine’s Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.

The project, which opened Friday, Oct. 20, was implemented by the War Museum with the support of the “Return Alive,” Charitable Foundation and Nova Poshta.

“Our partner is also the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. Thanks to this, we received a unique exhibit – almost an entire UAV, handed over by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny. Among other things, visitors will be able to see elements of various types of devices used by the enemy's army,” Yuriy Savchuk, Director General of the National Museum of the History of Ukraine in the Second World War, said at the opening of the project's exposition.


The exposition of the exhibition presents unmanned aerial vehicles of various types, which are used by Russia for reconnaissance and destruction of ground targets.

Among the exhibits: an aviation internal combustion engine from the Shahed 136 UAV ("Geran-2"), the Orlan-10 UAV , the DJI Phantom 4 Pro WM331A, the ZALA 421-16E2 scout.

The UAV handed over by Zaluzhny was captured in battle in the summer of 2022 in the southern direction of the front by servicemen of the 1129th anti-aircraft missile regiment.

A well-known craftswoman from the Dnipropetrovsk region, a member of the National Union of Artists, Iryna Kibets, decorated the enemy's weapons with Ukrainian Petrykiv painting.

The project is meant to serve as a reminder of the need to help Ukrainian defenders, particularly by providing them with the latest means of identifying and destroying targets.
