In the city of Nefteyugansk, Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, Russia, “Heat for Soldier Z” was opened, in which “household items of Ukrainians from cities in the zone of a special military operation (that’s what the war in Ukraine is called in Russia)” are displayed as exhibits.
According to the NEFT edition, the museum, in particular, presents books in the Ukrainian language, car numbers, orders and identity cards. The items were allegedly brought from the war by “volunteers”.
On the website of the organizer of the exhibition, the Union of Marines of Nefteyugansk, it is said that “there are not many exhibits yet, but the museum will be filled.”
In turn, the head of the Union of Marines, Denys Hrybkov, said that the exhibition was designed to “show the importance of the shared history with Ukrainians” and “tell about the brotherhood of nations.”
In the reports about the exhibition, it is not specified how the donors of the museum received the displayed exhibits. The Russian military has been repeatedly accused of looting the occupied territories of Ukraine. Only in the first three months of the full-scale invasion, the Russians sent home 60 tons of parcels, according to an investigation by Mediazona.
