In the cultural and exhibition corner of the remand prison No. 2 of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia in the Murmansk Region, a thematic exhibition dedicated to Russian culture and the traditional celebration of Maslenitsa was organized during Maslenitsa week.

The exhibits for the exhibition within the framework of cooperation were provided by the participants of the Yarushko folk art studio of the youth social center in Apatity.

Thematically, the exhibition featured two groups of exhibits. One is dedicated to Russian life – a copper frying pan from the time of tsarist Russia and wooden dishes. The second group of objects is entirely composed of traditional handmade ritual dolls.

And, of course, the exposition takes into account that not a single holiday in Russia took place without mass festivities, sledding, balalaikas and buffoons. The highlight of the exposition was the ritual horse made of birch bark, which annually took part in the celebration of the Wide Maslenitsa at the city event.

According to the organizer of the exhibition, senior inspector of the group for educational work with suspects, accused, convicts of SIZO-2 Yevgeny Timofeyev, employees of the institution, convicts of the household service detachment and detained minors had the opportunity to visit the exhibition and get acquainted with its exhibits.
