The Russian leader also visited the Victory Museum on Poklonnaya Gora, where he examined the expositions and launched an online project, TASS reports.
Putin toured the “People’s Feat” exposition, which was opened for the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War and tells about the life of Soviet people at that time.
The interactive project, located on an area of more than three thousand square meters, combines artifacts and elements of theater and cinema, including modern multimedia complexes, three-dimensional panoramas and scenery, about seven thousand exhibits and 22 films-reconstructions. All this helps to recreate the war era.
At the museum, Vladimir Putin also got acquainted with the historical depository “Faces of Victory”.
This is a global multimedia project, launched at the end of 2019 and designed to collect the most complete information about the contribution to the victory over Nazism of each of the country’s inhabitants, including the military, partisans and home front workers, in order to preserve their memory for future generations.
