The dangerous machine gunneress is me. Dangerous because of the DP28 machine gun.

My friends have been thinking about the idea of making museum out of some bunker, but this idea is not for our bureaucratic system. Collecting all papers and receiving all permissions would probably take as much time as it took for people to build the serpents walls and at the end of this venture we ourselves will only be good for museum.

In any way, since I got internet I can make some sort of a virtual museum and lead readers of this site through places of old battles.

Bunkers are distributed within the fortified area separated by 400-450 meters (about one quarter mile) creating a kill zone for small arms fire from the embrasures. There are 220 land-based bunkers and countless underground bunkers (blindages) standing along the ramparts.

All the bunkers are connected with trenches, some with underground passages.

The serpents walls, tank ditches, natural barriers such as rivers, lakes etc, all this creates the fortified area. The defence line is located 15 kms from city and was built in 1929-1937. It is 75 kms long. In the illustration below the wall is designated with red color and the perimeter of the city with the blue.


War between Germany and Soviet Union began in June 22, 1941.

Town start getting prepared for attack. 200.000 people went out to help army with preparations and on July 11th, 1941 first German troops showed up on the bridge through Irpen river.


Veterans says the battle began with fire from this bunker. Kiev witnessed two battles, one for defence and other for liberation of a city, both were one of the biggest battles of WW2.
