Georgia war trophy exhibit in Moscow

The Central Museum of Russia's Armed Forces in Moscow has opened to the Russian public an exhibition of war trophies seized by the Russian army during the Georgia conflict. Most of the exhibits are items of weaponry, and a special focus of the show is to demonstrate that many of the weapons are Western in origin, supplied in particular by the United States, Great Britain, Ukraine and the Czech Republic. There are also unit flags and uniforms, as well as photographs of the "aggressor's" (standard parlance for Georgia) armoured columns.
