On June 17, Moscow's Mayor Sergey Sobyanin announced that the prototype Buran space shuttle OK-TVA will be moved from Gorky Park to the All-Russian Exhibition Center, or VDNKh, permanent general-purpose trade show.

Buran OK-TVA, which was used for the thermal, mechanical and acoustic tests, was put on exhibit at Gorky Park as an amusement park attraction in 1997. The move to VDNKh is expected to take place in July.

Moscow Times space and defense correspondent Matthew Bodner yesterday shared photos of the disassembled Buran on Twitter.
