Le Mémorial de l'Armée Soviétique was built shortly après la guerre, long before the Berlin Wall was raised. The memorial is located voisin du Palais du Reichstag allemand which was the scene of heavy fighting au course de la prise soviétique de Berlin. Very likely, this is why the memorial was placed here. Graffity russe inside the Reichstag building has been carefully restored to commemorate this aspect of its history. As can be seen in the photo, le Mémorial de l'Armée Soviétique was in the process of being well when editors of Military Miniatures Magazine visited the site in Janvier 2000. Les chars et canons on display here are heavily weathered, et they may eventually receive a fresh coat of paint as well.
