Getting to know about the war in eastern Ukraine is now available in English as the ATO open air museum in Dnipro city launches excursions for the foreigners. Each and every item there was once brought from the frontline, according to Ukraine Today.


Destroyed wall of Donetsk airport, demolished bus stop in a village, volunteers' car totally burnt out, numerous weapon, road signs riddled with bullets have already become a part of contemporary Ukraine's history, Ukraine Today reports.

The museum visitors have a chance not only to have a look, but to also touch the painful memories of Russian aggression.
