Smolensk Museum Staff Quits as Protest

All staff members of the local history museum in Yartsevo resigned their posts at the end of 2012 to declare protest against the indifferent attitude of local government towards the museum’s collapsing building. 

Following this authorities of the Yartsevo District of the Smolensk Region employed new staff for work and started inspecting the museum funds.

In the early 2000s the local history museum moved from two small buildings (which were transferred to commercial structures) in Gorky Street to one of the two halls of the Rossiya movie theater. The building of the movie theater constructed in the 1930s has never been overhauled.  As the Russian Newspaper reports, in recent years the building has started collapsing and its roof has been leaking, therefore exhibits have to be covered with polyethylene film, whereas employees have had to buy all necessary materials on their own money.
