At the border of the Kirovograd and Nikolaev regions, not far from the city of Pervomaysk, 220 kilometers from Nikolaev, a unique Museum of Strategic Rocket Troops is situated, that not so long ago used to be a secret missile base. It was affiliated to the 46th Nizhnedneprovskaya Krasnozmennaya division of the October Revolution Order. The silo-based missiles of RS-22A (SS-24 “Scalpel”) type were deployed at the base. Also one can get acquainted with samples of missile engines, auxiliary motor-vehicles, and a mock nuclear warhead. A type P-12 missile is presented to the visitors (it played the key role in the Caribbean crisis of the 1961) and a type PC-20 missile (SS-18 ‘Satan”), the most powerful at the moment. Along the underground corridor, with a length of 155 meters, one can get to the underground command post, designed for a fully autonomous functioning for the period of 45 days.

Thank you once again for your services! Twice now you have helped me surprise my special lady with a gift. This week you delivered flowers to her on exactly the day I wished... her birthday! She was quite happy and excited, as she did not think that she would receive a single gift from anyone for it. I also appreciated the photo that you took of her and sent to me. Previously you helped me with a special concierge service that NO ONE ELSE in Nikolaev could or would provide! I had almost given up until Dmitry from your Customer Service department told me, "Yes, I can do that." Dmitry was especially helpful as we exchanged many emails in order to get all of the details correct, and everything went exactly as we planned. I will be forever grateful for his help in that matter. Thank you again!

Going to a new country is often a little scary for me especially since I've read and heard of the scams that exist so commonly in Ukraine. However, Dimitry and his company delivered a punctual, professional, and thorough service that made me feel comfortable knowing that my desired wishes would be fulfilled reliably. I will use them again and I wish they would proliferate to all parts of Ukraine. Thanks Dimitry!!!!
