DONETSK, December 17. /TASS/. The authorities of the self-proclaimed Donetsk republic denied on Wednesday Ukrainian media reports that a rare tank locomotive widely known as Cuckoo has been stolen from a museum and taken to Russia.
The reports said citing the country’s Security Service that locomotive 2062, an exhibit in the museum of history and development of Donetsk railway, has been taken to Russia through the Matveyev Kurgan checkpoint located on the border.
“Go to the museum and take pictures of it where it still is. Ukrainian media like fakes and telling fairy tales. We cannot do this,” said the Donetsk republic’s transport minister, Semyon Kuzmenko.
The locomotive was built in 1929 at Kolomna Locomotive Works and is the world’s only surviving machine of the kind. The model is unique as fuel and water are stored in containers installed on the locomotive.
