Military history of Ekaterinburg & the biggest private collection of Russian Arms

 

 

 

The Soviet Union was the superpower rival to the United States. The Cold War between the two nations led to military buildups, the nuclear arms race, and the Space Race.
Soviet leaders since the late 1920s have emphasized military production over investment in the civilian economy. The high priority given to military production has traditionally enabled military-industrial enterprises to commandeer the best managers, labor, and materials from civilian plants. As a result, the Soviet Union has produced some of the world's most advanced armaments.
Ekaterinburg (named as Sverdlovsk since 1924 till 1991) played the most important role in the Soviet military-industrial complex and was closed for foreigners till 1991.
