The policemen will give gifts, talk with the pupils of children’s centers, with retirees in a nursing home and will talk about specific features of their service.
The action has been organized with the support of MIA of Russia territorial bodies. The rally will pass through such cities as Kovrov, Yegoryevsk, Tver, Murom and Moscow.
The goal of the action is to bring New Year’s mood to those who especially need care and warm attitude on the eve of the holidays, and to draw public attention to the problems of the least protected citizens – children and the elderly, to remind people of the importance of supporting each other in a difficult situation,” said the official representative of the Russian MIA Irina Volk.
