More than a century in the service of the Fatherland. The military commissariat of Minsk region is 103
The staff of the military commissariat of Minsk region celebrates 103 years on December 7.
The history of the creation of military commissariats takes us back into the depths of the centuries. Only at different times were these structures called differently, from scribes of Ancient Rus - to military departments of local volost, uyezd, provincial and regional Soviets.
Minsk Provincial Military Commissariat was established on December 7, 1918 by Order No. 1 of the Provincial Commissariat for Military Affairs. During the period of its existence, the military commissariat bore different names - from the Minsk provincial commissariat to the military commissariat of the Byelorussian SSR and back - to the military commissariat of the Minsk region. However, its functions have remained and remain unchanged, both during the years of the Civil and Great Patriotic Wars, and in peacetime.
As a local body of military control, the military commissariat of Minsk region, together with local executive and administrative bodies, ensures that officials, citizens of the republic fulfill the requirements of the Constitution and legislation of the Republic of Belarus on defense, social protection of servicemen, conscripts, conscripts and their families, decides the tasks of mobilization readiness and territorial defense, organizes the conscription of citizens for military service and in the reserve, as well as the preparation of young people for military service. And it should be noted that these tasks are being successfully solved.
The military commissar of Minsk region, Colonel Igor Tarabesh, noted on the holiday:
— Our army begins with a military commissariat. In terms of the content and nature of the tasks performed, we are the link between military units, local executive and administrative bodies, and most importantly the population.
