Launch Sequence: Ukraine Strategic Missile Forces Museum

Launch sequence go. Touring the Ukraine Strategic Missile Forces Museum is not just looking a dust-covered 80s computers. The guide fires up the launch sequence with all the alarms buzzing and tells you to flip the switch.

Several hours south of Kiev, near Uman, this was my prime target on my Fog, Bribes and Hitler’s Wehrwolf drive in Ukraine.

The grounds are strewn with equipment and deactivated missiles of towering size. Going down into the bunker where Soviet soldiers were sealed in 48-hour shifts is thrilling and terrifying.
