House-Museum of F.E. Dzerzhinsky in Kai village
The 11 of September, 2020 marked the 143rd anniversary of the birthday of the founder of the law enforcement agencies of Russia, Dzerzhinsky Felix Edmundovich. A group of members of the Police Association, headed by the vice-president of the association, Viktor Nikolayevich Kolpakov, went to participate in the festive events in Kai village, Verkhnekamsk district.
Kai village is a familiar place. There is a museum here, opened in 1938 in the house where F.E.Dzerzhinsky lived while in exile in 1899. The House-Museum of F.E. Dzerzhinsky existed in Kai from 1938 to 1994. In 2015, the DFSB for the Kirov region and local residents decided to recreate the museum. In 2016-2017, a new building was built and an exposition was formed that covers the entire life of Dzerzhinsky. The exposition was created by employees of the Kirov Regional Museum of Local Lore with the support of the veteran organization of the DFSB of Russia, which is the curator of the museum.
After the excursion and the solemn part of the event, there were demonstration performances of the Young Army members from Lesnoy village.
We thank Kolpakov Viktor Nikolaevich, Vice President of our Association, and Pervakov Andrey Pavlovich for their participation in the event!
