  3. WW2 MEMORIAL COMPLEX IN KIEV For all like-minded history admirers, who have previously paid attention to my Poland-2018 historical trip I am excited to share a new material about one of the largest WW2 memorial complexes and museum worldwide with a total collection of 400 000 exhibit units. Within this detailed material I would like to invite you to make a virtual tour along with all the main sites, museums and statues of the WW2 Memorial complex in Kiev, Ukraine, my native land. Also, I would try to fill the gap between my English-speaking readers and the names, notions, connected with the Eastern front, USSR, Ukraine, to detail into the historiography of Kiev in the Second World War. I hope this, in some sense ‘unobvious’ Ukrainian military tour would have no fewer interest that the previous ones.

I have devoted almost a month to this detailed article with the history of each site and building, dozens of archival and present photos, quotes from the books on the issue.
