What a terrible thing to have happened. At least nobody got hurt there.
It is a marker of the stupidity and senseless waste that characterizes Wars. Not only material things, but worse loss of life and quality of it. Whatever the political objectives of it are, its never justified to start one.
I'm pretty sure that most Russian people would be pretty unhappy about it too, that's why some are throwing Molotov cocktails at the Kremlin.
Practically everyone I talk to on my world travels, we all want the same thing. A safe place to live and raise a family and security where they live. Nobody except "the leaders/dictators/military generals etc" ever wants to start war.

The curator survived, but both his house and life's work were blown to bits at the command of an idiot.

One can only wonder how many unique things are now lost forever.

Super sad for sure.... senseless acts wipe value from society....

Thankful that no one (in this instance) was hurt physically.... but the emotional scars will last a while :(

Ill be honest in this scenario with all the homes and property destoyed and all the people murdered in the process of war, vintage computers dont matter at all. Not even a little. And I am pretty damn certain all the people of Ukraine would agree.
