April 17 celebrates the Day of veterans of internal affairs and internal forces

17 April is the Day of veterans of internal affairs bodies and internal troops in Russia. This is a relatively young holiday. It was established on 12 August 2010 by order of the former Minister of the Interior of the Russian Federation, Rashid Nurgaliyev. The first time it was celebrated in 2011 year. The date of April 17 was not chosen by chance, it was timed to the 20 anniversary of the creation of the Public Organization of ATS Veterans and Explosives formed on April 17 of the year 1991.

In Russia, veterans are always receiving increased attention. A special category of our citizens are veterans of the Great Patriotic War, who are respected by the entire society and enjoy a package of various benefits. This attitude is logical, because thanks to these people who fought against fascism, virtually all of us were granted the future, freedom from possible German bondage. At the same time, there is another group of veterans in Russia to whom Russian society is no less obliged today - they are veterans of the internal affairs bodies and internal troops.

The day of the veterans of the internal affairs bodies and internal troops is a celebration of all those people who served their country with honor, defended its citizens from the encroachments of criminals, with weapons they protected us in the hands of counterterrorism operations, stood guard over law and order. Loyalty to civic duty and the chosen path of life, their heroism can be aroused only by deserved respect from the current employees of the system of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Currently, there are more than 600 thousands of veterans living in the Russian Federation who in different years served in the internal affairs agencies or internal troops. In this case, veterans, even in retirement, do not sit with folded hands, continuing to benefit society. They are engaged in the promotion of law and order, work and train young employees of internal affairs bodies, passing on their accumulated experience and knowledge, devoting time to preventive work among minors, attending schools. According to the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, thanks to the help of veterans and veterans' organizations and their invaluable experience, a sufficiently large number of crimes are revealed in the country every year, and dangerous criminals can be detained. Only in 2012, with the help of veterans of the interior, almost 24 of thousands of crimes were revealed. Every 5 veteran today takes part in the practical activities of the internal affairs agencies and units of the internal troops of Russia.

There are more than 30 thousand people in the veterans of the Interior Ministry troops in Russia. At the same time, there are public organizations of veterans of the internal troops with all military units, formations and institutions of the MIA of Russia. Even where previously there were military units and formations that were disbanded, sections of veterans of internal troops in veteran organizations of ATS are often created.

Veterans of internal affairs agencies and orphanages, adolescents from incomplete and dysfunctional families, often taking patronage over them. They try, as much as they can, to fight with such a shameful phenomenon for the country as children's homelessness. Unfortunately, Russia has not been able to defeat this phenomenon to the end since the times of the civil war. It’s no secret that such work of veterans helps to form a positive attitude of the Russian society to the police officers serving in the internal troops, as well as to the staff of the Interior Ministry as a whole - Russian citizens do not always treat law enforcement officers with respect and understanding, and for this, unfortunately, also are their reasons.

April 17 celebrates the Day of veterans of internal affairs and internal forces

There are relatively young people among veterans, some of them are not even 30 years old. They are those who served in the North Caucasus and in other “hot spots” in our country who received severe injuries, injuries and disabilities during service, but they did not break down and did not lose their place in the ranks. At the same time, the veterans of the Department of Internal Affairs and the Air Force try to take care of the families of the employees who died in the line of duty - they try to provide them not only with material assistance, but also with psychological support, substituting their shoulders.

Every year on April 17, veterans of internal affairs agencies and internal troops receive congratulations from colleagues, relatives and friends. In addition, on this day, festive events are organized not only in the veterans' organizations, but also in the operating units - as the work of the veterans continues to be a part of their activities. Traditionally, on this memorable day, festive concerts, tea parties, solemn assemblies are held, veterans are given memorable gifts, honorary awards and certificates. But these celebrations are not limited. Veterans of ATS and BB try not to lose their energy and activity while maintaining physical fitness. Sports competitions and shooting tournaments are held especially for them, and both men and women take part in them. Both those and others serve as a personal example for young law enforcement officers. Together with representatives of the public, veterans are trying to organize and conduct methodical conferences where they discuss quite topical issues and problems.

We join in the congratulations to veterans and we. I would like to wish all veterans of the Department of Internal Affairs and the Air Forces of Russia health, longevity, even if they actively continue to participate in public life, assisting their younger colleagues.

    This service is dangerous
    And, as usual, is difficult.
    You served not in vain
    Your experience is visible!

    You have a great honor,
    Veterans of the Ministry of Internal Affairs,
    And you can arrange
    Songs, Dances, etc.

    Table set, pour and drink
    For success, for friends
    And for being vigilant
    And retired is your spirit!

    The photo at the beginning of the article is good, but the cartridges for the "Makar" are cheap, the cartridges are green, and therefore Izhevsk, for shooting. Good cartridges were with yellow brass cartridges produced until 93-95. Then, either the powder was better in composition or could withstand the weight, But with cartridges of release '98 and further, with standard shooting at 25m at a chest target, the results were already worse. For some reason, there was a spread on the target, but when they went with a green sleeve, it was generally a disaster. Specially shot for a bet with green ones in 2002. and old patrons of 1996 release (there was a stash) the result is the earth and the sky.

    Bitter tinctures will not help us,
    Do not "smear" a farewell buffet
    Soldiers will sink into oblivion.
    Those that Felix honored portrait.

    Dissolve like thoughts, traditions
    In a whirl of reforms and pursuits ..
    Unusual word police
    Veterans will put on the line.

    I’ll take my “crust” in my hands ...

    "Whoever remains is lucky!"

    "Salaries are said to be huge !!"
    "They will remove the income tax !!"
    I looked into the eyes irrepressible ...
    And I thought: "God bless you" .....
    .................................................. ..
    Someone’s got stronger
    Someone will increase arrogance ...
    I can’t work in the police
    I ended up in the police ...

    Time is compressed into a brief report.
    Conclusion: dozens of years
    The people walked along the wrong road
    This is just an experiment
    An experiment from crazy ideas:
    Crush the world and then
    Everyone on earth will make people happy
    Red banner of labor.
    The royal gendarmes were removed as a class,
    Crosses tore off the temples
    And in November, a decree was signed,
    So there were cops.
    Different threads were running.
    It was. But the thief knew:
    Our police kept us safe
    How did not scold her.
    The word is insulting ?! What are you, not at all!
    I do not regret
    That he walked his way of life,
    What was called a cop!
    ... November again. And I'm sad a little:
    No more police.
    NKVD, KGB, Cheka -
    The experiment is over!
    To you today’s cop
    Our police order:
    Life do not spare for the good of people
    Take the banner from us!

    Police, veteran
    There is an organization.
    She is not alone in her ten years.
    What is her secret work?

    In that we are just able to be friends.
    We warm each other with warmth.
    In the bitter hour, we try to be near.
    Who is interested in anyone - we communicate.

    In anniversaries we bring greetings.
    Although the hotel’s simple at the same time,
    Representatives of the council
    Sometimes through the newspaper
    Remember those who are not with us today:
    They are not enough already, unfortunately.
    Measured by memory for years.
    And since we remember - they have no oblivion.
    We are celebrating Police Day,
    Gathering on Veteran's Day.
    We see relatives near us.
    It means that it’s too early for us to rest.
    And, of course, the soul is getting warmer
    What colleagues do not forget us:
    And in the days of trouble, and in the days of anniversaries
    Often they are near us.
    Police, veteran
    There is and will be an organization.
    If only there was no indifference.
    Indeed, in unity - we are the best

    And now, policemen, ask yourself the question: "Who do you serve ???" It is unlikely that the common people will be the first to cut you in the event of a revolution. Yes, in the RF Armed Forces you have never been your own, and you will not, which is good So they renamed you in accordance with the tasks performed. POLITSAY, it sounds proudly! Well, Vlasov will help you))) Yes, and do not compare yourself with the NKVD, you are pitiful traitors compared to them.
