Immortal Regiment permanent exhibition organized by Russian expats started at the Victory Day. Today, at the day when the Great Patriotic War broke out, the exposition was complemented by new photos. The majority of museum visitors today were Russian expats and natives of Ex-Soviet Union Republics. They brought flowers to the wall with portraits of the Soviet Soldiers who fought against Fascism. War songs and the announcement of the WWII beginning made by Yuri Levitan sounded from the speakers.

According to Dina Kurbanova who is one of these project initiators, this exposition is unique in Ireland. It is devoted to the role of the Soviet Union in WWII. She has underlined that we should not allow the memory of these awful days to be wiped off far from the Motherland.

Dina Kurbanova has reminded that around 80 thousand Irishmen were fighting in the allied regiments at different frontlines. Many schoolchildren attend museum excursions. This exposition will help them get to know about Nina O’Brien, an Irish citizen, who fought in the Soviet Army.
