"Our история began in 2010, when a museum of military glory of the units of the Berezovsky garrison was opened on the basis of the Berezovsky district military commissariat - the first such museum in the Brest region. We were united by love for our native land, knowledge of its history, and, of course, the desire to direct our efforts towards the formation of an objective attitude of society towards the historical past, the preservation and strengthening of the unity of the peoples of Russia and Belarus, - says the head of the future branch of the Military Technical Society in Bereza Brestskoy region of the Republic of Belarus Evgeny Skvortsov. - We believe that patriotism is really the strongest thing. But only if there is truth behind it. Truth is weapon patriotism.
Today, the members of the branch are a close-knit team of like-minded people, people with an active civic life position. The opening of a new branch is another step towards the formation of patriotism and patriotic education of young people, as well as the development of the Military Technical Society as an interregional organization of the Union State of Russia and Belarus.”
