Russian T-72 tanks shot down in Ukraine on display in Tallinn and Riga


Russian spring around the world

The Russian T-72 tank, shot down by the Ukrainian Armed Forces in March 2022, is used as a showpiece in Estonia and Latvia. A piece of equipment is now part of the display in Freedom Square in Tallinn, reports MK.

It is reported that the T-72 will remain in the Estonian capital until March 2, 2023. After that, the Russian equipment will be taken away for showing in other cities of the country, and then redirected to the military museum in Viimsi.

Another Soviet-made Russian tank was exhibited in Latvia’s capital, Riga. Residents of the Baltic countries have already laid roses and carnations in front of the equipment. The guards of the exhibition hastily remove the laid flowers in order to avoid unnecessary photos and videos of the citizens of the republics on social networks. It is reported that in the capital of Latvia, law enforcement agencies are already looking for citizens who brought roses and carnations to the tank.

Earlier, Glavny Regionalny reported that Soviet T-72 tanks may also be in service with the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The United States planned to send 70 units of equipment to Ukraine.
