TASS reported on a press conference at the Ministry of Defense, where they said that the Ukrainian military was cunningly placing their military equipment in residential areas and near children's institutions:
“The head of the National Center for Defense Control, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev, said that <....> in the city of Dnipro, servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at school No. 23 (Yavornitsky Avenue) equipped a strong point, and placed artillery and armored vehicles in the immediate vicinity of the educational institution.”
The address of school No. 23 in the city of Dnipro is Dmitra Yavornitsky Avenue, 14. And at the address Dmytro Yavornitsky Avenue, 16 is the Dnepropetrovsk National Historical Museum. Its complex includes the Battle for the Dnieper diorama, and near its building there is an open-air exposition of military equipment.
The exhibits are listed on the museum's website. These are a 122-mm howitzer of the 1910/1930 model, a regimental mortar of 1938, an M-30 howitzer of 1938, anti-aircraft guns 52-K and 61-K of 1939, an anti-tank gun ZIS-2 of 1941, a BM-13 rocket artillery installation ( "Katyusha") of 1941, BS-3 field gun of 1943, T-34-85 tanks of 1943 and T-70 of 1946, S-125 SAM launcher of 1961.
So the artillery and armored vehicles are really there. True, all this was placed by servicemen not of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as General Mizintsev claims, but of the Soviet Army at the initiative of Air Marshal Vladimir Sudts. The order to place the equipment was signed by the Minister of Defense of the USSR Andrei Grechko, and this happened in 1975.
