We remember all your endeavors and we try to preserve and multiply them. The Ministry of Internal Affairs is doing everything to improve the social protection of our veterans, to support them, and to develop the regulatory framework in this sphere.”

Special words of appreciation were addressed to women-veterans, who, like men, endured the difficulties of the service and did not forget about their homes and their loved ones.

Vladimir Kolokoltsev wished those present and in their face all the veterans of the internal affairs bodies happiness, health and well-being.
