The event took place in the Yoshkar-Ola Youth Palace on the eve of the celebration of the Defender of the Fatherland Day. “Modern weapons and military equipment” is the name of the exhibition, which was organized at the Youth Palace for schoolchildren of the city as part of the republican month of mass defense and military patriotic work.
The organizers prepared 12 sites for the children from the departmental power structures and the armed forces, where they presented specialized auto and motor vehicles, equipment and small arms. At one of the sites, schoolchildren could familiarize themselves with detailed information on the procedure for admission to higher military educational institutions, as well as educational organizations of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia.
On their site, employees of the special purpose department “Yastreb” presented samples of weapons, equipment and special equipment that they use in their work. The soldiers talked about pistols, machine guns, a sniper rifle and a machine gun. The guys were allowed to touch everything, hold it in their hands, turn it around – under the supervision of instructors, of course. The students asked questions, tried on protective helmets, body armor and took pictures. And to those who were interested, employees of the personnel service of correctional colonies told about the possibility of admission to educational organizations of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia and presented the children with information booklets.
The FPS has always paid special attention to patriotic and educational work with young people. Employees often meet with schoolchildren, conduct “Lessons of Courage” for them, sometimes the guys come on an excursion to the location of the special purpose department “Hawk”. Such meetings are an important component of patriotic work and, possibly, will help schoolchildren in choosing their future profession.
The event was held at a high level and, judging by the emotions, the students really liked it. Near each booth and exhibition table, people gathered to try on fighting equipment, body armor, helmets and examine the contents of the forensic suitcase. The event interested not only boys, but also girls, who studied the exhibits with great interest. The organizers expressed their deep gratitude to all the participants of the event.
