Gazprom 's Museum of War inauguration - Boris Svetlov, Konstantin Sumar and Vitaly Markelov

 

Led by Vitaly Markelov, Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, a Company's delegation took part in the inauguration of a new museum within the Brest Hero-Fortress memorial complex.

Boris Svetlov, Minister of Culture of the Republic of Belarus and Konstantin Sumar, Chairman of the Brest Regional Executive Committee participated in the ceremony.

The museum is called 'Museum of War – Territory of Peace'. Located in the premises of the south-eastern barrack, it occupies around one thousand square meters. Eight museum halls hold over two thousand showpieces dedicated to the Brest Fortress defenders.

Gazprom sponsored the creation of the museum and the restoration of the south-eastern barrack. In addition, over many years Gazprom has been supplying gas to the Eternal Flame in the Ceremonial Square free of charge.

“We are proud of the heroic deed of the Brest Fortress defenders, and we help the descendants to retain the memory of it in their hearts.

The museum was opened in the year of the 70th Anniversary of Liberation from the German Nazi invasion. This is symbolic, as the second half of the museum's name runs 'territory of peace',” said Vitaly Markelov in his address.
