    The missile will go on display at a renewable exhibition of weapons and military equipment at the VDNKh. The complex will be installed next to a mockup of the Buran space shuttle.

    A Topol intercontinental mobile ballistic missile launcher will make a 100-kilometer journey through the streets of night Moscow, the press office of the Russian Defense Ministry told RIA Novosti.

    "Today a Topol transporter will leave the campus of the Petr Veliky military academy of the Russian Strategic Rocket Forces in Serpukhov, near Moscow and will drive to the All-Russia Exhibition Center (VDNKh) where it will be on display," according to the ministry.

    The Topol will go on display at a renewable exhibition of weapons and military equipment at the VDNKh. The complex will be installed next to a mockup of the Buran space shuttle.

    "The installation will eternalize the memory of the creators of nuclear missiles and symbolize the contribution of the Russian Strategic Rocket Forces to maintaining defense and security of the country. It will also render homage to the military service of missile forces of many generations," the ministry said.
