In poster in Moscow's historical park, the dates of terror acts in Dubrovka and Beslan glued up

A visitor to the park "Russia – My History" at the Exhibition of Economic Achievements (known as the VDNKh) has noted that the banner on the history of the country has the dates of the hostage-taking in Dubrovka in 2002 and the terror act in Beslan in 2004 glued up.

"Yesterday, I happened to be in the pavilion of the history of Russia at the VDNKh, where a large table is on the wall of all important events 'from Rurik to Putin'. Four events are nicely glued up. Who can guess all the four?" he asked on the Facebook.

The glued up dates on the poster are the seizure of hostages by terrorists at the Musical Nord-Ost Centre in Dubrovka in 2002, the terror act in Beslan in 2004, and the disaster at the "Kursk" nuclear submarine in 2000, the "Lenta" writes.

The press service of the project "Russia – My History" has confirmed that some dates on the poster are glued up, and stated that the map-poster is not included in the main exposition, writes the "Dozhd" (Rain) TV Channel.

On October 23, 2002, in the "Dubrovka" Theatrical Centre, militants captured 916 people as hostage, demanding an end of hostilities in Chechnya. Three days later, at least 130 people were killed during the assault of the building, and more than 700 others were injured.
