  • In may/2017. Museum of the policy history of Russia is called. It is a small museum, affordable, that goes unnoticed in the audacious of Petersburgo. When it is located in some rooms inside a former sinister building of the Ministry of the Interior, there at the back of the Admiralty. And it should be when it is actually remember all that secret thing involving the activities of the forces of the political police (Cheka, NKVD, OGPU, MVD KGB) Russia, mainly in the Soviet era. Curious conception of political history. There is described through personal, artistic, technological objects, curiosities, relics, memorabilias, photos, texts and reconstructions: the history of the activities of these secret services of police security as a fundamental instrument, in a particular conception of the internal and external defence of the State. As a curiosity, among other iconic objects, one can discover a Richard Sorge wrist watch. The most famous spy real in the history, which had wanted to emulate the fictional Jason Bourne, Ethan Hunt, Red Sparrow and to Bond... James Bond. Outside on the Gorokhovaya Street, on the side of the building will be a surprise and surviving commemoration to Felix Dzerzhinsky, whose statue facing the Palace Lubyanka in Moscow, was demolished. In short, small museum on the theme of the Russian security services of the State, to go and buy some publication on the topic. Dasvidania!
