Up until 1992 Ukraine's nuclear arsenal which was the third largest in the world was managed by Moscow. After Ukraine became independent the country couldn’t afford the technical or financial capacity to maintain the arsenal.
After the accession to the Lisbon Protocol to the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, began the elimination of nuclear weapons.
As a result, in 2001 the Pervomaysk Division opened a missile museum. In the Pervomayskaya Division there were 86 military missiles- almost 800 targets, which could be hit by one missile.
Each of these 800 nuclear warheads had the power many times higher than the power of the atomic bombs that were dropped in 1945 on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The museum features exhibits on the history of the Strategic Missile Forces and the Missile Division.
You can go down to the underground bunker, and view the underground unified command post.
After exploring underground and back on the surface, you can view the silo-launcher and samples of specialized auto technology.
Visitors can see examples of cruise missiles and missile RS-20V (classified NATO S-18 "Satan")
This museum has all the equipment and tools used in the maintenance of missile systems, rocket engines, space communication systems, and in the areas of the headquarters barracks - many unique exhibits that tell the story about the genius of technological advances embodied in the creation of a nuclear-missile shield state.
