On March 2, at 7 Gorodskoi Val Str, there was opened the reconstructed museum of the Center of Cultural and Educational Work of the Ministry of Interior and the sculptural composition "Minsk Policeman", the "Minsk-news" agency reports.
The official ceremony was attended by Interior Minister Igor Shunevich, Minister for Emergency Situations Vladimir Vashchenko, Chairman of Minsk City Executive Committee Andrei Shorets and others.
"For the sculptural composition they selected a collective image - Minsk policeman. I would like to thank all those who have put their soul and heart into this work. I would also like to congratulate all of you with the coming professional holiday", said Igor Shunevich.
Andrei Shorets also made a welcoming speech:
"It's so nice that on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the Belarusian police and the 950th anniversary of Minsk the city has received such a gift - it can become a symbol and a landmark for its residents".
Then the participants in the event started for the museum to see its exhibits.
According to the employees of the museum, during the renovation the building received its original appearance. Previously, it was a residential two-story house built in 1914. A most interesting feature is that the building was completely preserved during the Great Patriotic War because in its construction special technologies were used that made the building resistant to destruction.
Making a tour of the museum one can learn about the history of the law enforcement system in Belarus from antiquity to the present day.
So, for example, in one of its rooms you will be told that in former times there were special inspectors that kept a vigilant watch over the observance of laws, who simultaneously performed several functions – reminding of the modern district militia officer, notary, judge, postman, and others.
