The ceremony was attended by Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation – Head of the Main Military-Political Directorate of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Colonel-General Andrei Kartapolov. Noting the uniqueness of the new exhibit, he cited eloquent facts: during the Great Patriotic War, five armored trains were awarded the Orders of the Red Banner, ten armored train divisions received honorary names for courage and courage.

It is noteworthy that the venue in the immediate vicinity of the new exhibit became the venue for the performance of the artists of the Central House of Arts, a group led by Ksenia Belova. The picture looked colorful: against the background of an armored train, they, dressed in the uniform of soldiers of the war years, performed the famous songs of the terrible forties. The audience’s applause, including the leaders of the Russian Ministry of Defense, representatives of the Russian Railways JSC, servicemen, youth soldiers and visitors to the museum complex, became a well-deserved award to the artists for their excellent performance.
