author: Olga Murtazina

About 800 thousand people will go into the streets and the ice castles (there will be more than 150 of such New Year constructions in all towns and regions RB) in the New Year night. Citizens of Bashkiria may have their rest calmly: more than three thousand policemen will keep public order, the deputy Minister of internal affairs in Republic of Bashkortostan Alexander Ovchinnikov reported at today’s briefing.

One more big holiday falls on the New Year holidays – the Christmas. About 40 thousand believers will presumably visit the festive services at 139 Christian churches of Bashkiria and one thousand policemen will guard their rest.
