Day of employees of the non-departmental security service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs
On October 29, the Day of the employees of the non-departmental security service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine is traditionally celebrated. Unofficial security appeared after the adoption of a decree in 1952 that regulated the introduction of security personnel in all areas of the economy and measures to improve the actual organization of security processes. Among other things, it was stated that in each republic, regional center and large city, an external security service should appear under the internal affairs bodies, which does not belong to any department and is engaged in the protection of economic objects regardless of their subordination.
On this day, it is customary to congratulate workers in this field. Their hard work provides hundreds of state facilities with protection from criminal encroachments, they also protect regime and strategic facilities, educational institutions, office buildings and others.
