(Excuse me for english) Recently beside us appeared such information:

Active workers " Societies of friends the Lincoln-tank " have declared intention to restore the tanks which are being Lugansk. And even are ready to find for this means. According to the most conservative estimates, it is necessary for two "Marks-5" restoration not less than one million dollars. Englishmen initiated the special project of restoration of tanks....
   - An English side has offered one tank to restore that is to say completely restore hisfunctions. But the second tank is solved reconstruct that is to say reconstruct all equipment, installed in tank, and reconstruct the situation in most tank, what her saw the crew.
Restore the tanks plan in Luganske. At present goes searching for a specialist, who could execute recovering the metallic details and nodes. It Is Expected that work will be conducted on one of the machine-building enterprise. After restoration tanks will install on former place, for the general review....

-Presently goes work basically technically-exploratory nature. Our division leads the active correspondence with englishes colleague from "Friends Lincoln-tank", Not until will are elaborated all technical nuances, will possible speak of project and cost estimate to restorations.

First tank will simply betray the initial type, will are accepted measures to save them from the further corrosion. Hereon plan to restore all mechanisms one of the tank, except engine and combat weapon. "Flavor" this отреставрированного copy will be a projector, which will allow the visitor a museum directly to loor around the booth of the tank.

Just to confirm, does this mean both tanks will be restored, then put back in Russia, or will both tanks be restored, one of them left at Lugansk and the other brought to the UK?

Mk-V from Russia (Arkhangelsk) is restored already. Tanks from Lugansk will stay in Ukraine after restoration.

Great to hear they're to be restored. I would like to think that this will also identify the tank's individual serial numbers (which should be possible from the maker's plaques inside the tanks, assuming they have survived) and that this information will be made public. This would allow us to say something of their histories.
