The Russian MOD decided to dispose of the complete archive of the Artillery directorate (also responsible for small arms and ALL ammunition for these weapons) for cost saving reason and reorganization. The archive was founded in 1575 and all documents will be destroyed. Even many Russian themselfes can not believe it!
Seems the are learning from the west way faster than one would expect…
The last hope for us is that people will steal hopefully plenty of these documents before they get destroyed and save them for the future. Or let us hope for a wonder.
