"The Struggle for Independence" is a new exhibition of the Museum of Local History in Zaporizhzhia
The Zaporizhzhia Regional Museum of Local Lore has become a place of exposition of the traces of the Russian invasion of Ukrainian territories, in particular the Zaporizhzhia region. The exhibits "tell" the history of the Russian-Ukrainian war, starting in 2014.
The exhibition "Struggle for Independence" includes about 200 items, most of which are fragments of weapons from 2014 to the present day. They "tell" about the main stages of the Russian-Ukrainian war. However, the emphasis is on the events that happened after the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine.

The exhibits of the exhibition were assembled by volunteers, who are frequent visitors to the museum, and military personnel defending the Zaporizhzhia region. According to Svitlana Taranenko, a senior researcher at the Zaporizhia Regional Museum of Local Lore, all fragments of weapons are original. However, they are absolutely safe.
Looking at the objects of the exhibition, you can follow how the weapons of the invaders, which were discovered in the Zaporozhye region and the city, changed.
"In the fall of 2022, especially October, a lot of shells and rockets fell on the city of Zaporizhzhia, there was severe destruction. Rockets fell on one of the energy facilities in the city of Zaporizhia. At the exhibition, we show a fragment of the Shahed of the 136th. This is the same one that Iran produces and then hands over to the Russian Federation," says Svitlana Tarasenko.
The exhibition presents not only weapons, but also military uniforms of Ukrainian defenders.

One of the most interesting exhibits of the exhibition is a bullet brought from Donetsk region and given to the museum by Zaporizhia historian, cyborg, employee of the Khortytsia National Reserve Vyacheslav Zaitsev.
The exhibition at the Zaporozhye Museum of Local Lore works on a permanent basis.
