Retro computing museum in Ukraine destroyed by Russian bomb

A privately owned collection of more than 500 pieces of retro computer and technology history has been destroyed by a Russian bomb in the city of Mariupol. The war in Ukraine is a tragedy on so many levels, but while it in no way matches up to the senseless taking of lives by the invading Russian forces, the destruction of the Mariupol Computer Museum is still saddening.

The destruction was highlighted by Mark Howlett on Twitter, and confirmed by the Ukrainian Software and Computer Museum account, which operates museums in Kharkiv and Kyiv. The owner of the Mariupul collection, Dmitry Cherepanov, is reportedly safe, though his collection of computers, consoles, and assorted tech from fifty years of computing has been wiped out.
