    Thank you for this video so much!

    Some corrections:
    - Ternopil never was in Russia but in Soviet Union.
    - Soviet Union is not the same that Russia.
    - I'm sure that soldiers on that video weren't Russian troops but mostly Ukrainians.
    - USSR (Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic) is not the same that RSSR (Russian Soviet Socialist Republic). RSSR and USSR was two different republics in one union USSR (United Soviet Socialist Republics).

    P.S.: that church on the first shots of video finally was destroyed by communists after the WWII. That happened in 1954...
