Monument in Honour of Ukraine Air Force Creation

The Air Force of Ukraine has been established in accordance with the Order of Chief Commander of Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine shortly after Ukraine’s independence, on March 17, 1992. And in 1998, to honour the anniversary of the Ukraine Air Force creation, an interceptor MiG-21PFM has been established on the pedestal in the city centre. The monument is located on Peremohy Square in Vinnyrsya in front of the so called Officers’ House – the Centre for Leisure, Culture and Education of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The plaque on the monument hails Ukrainian aviators (and Vinnytsya is a birthplace of many of the prominent Ukraine Aviators).
