Russia is showing off some of the most advanced defence systems with a focus on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). However, what attracted viewers’ attention at the exhibition was the Ukrainian and Western defence equipment captured by Russia during the war in Ukraine.

Specifically, according to the Russian Ministry of Defence, equipment seized during the “special operation in Ukraine” is displayed at Patriot Park near Moscow, a park with military exhibits.
