Video: Presidential Administration head hands out passports to teenagers

Natallya Kachanava, head of the Presidential Administration, and Andrey Belyakow, first secretary of the Belarusian National Youth Union's Central Committee, handed out passports to a group of 14-year-old boys and girls in a ceremony in Minsk on March 10.
The event took place at the Belarusian Statehood Museum. Gifted 14-year-olds with achievements in science, culture, sports or public activity had been hand-picked for the ceremony.
"Holding such events for many years is a very important ideological component in work with youths," said Ms. Kachanava. "I think that this is a landmark event for each of the young people who received the passport at the statehood museum today, and they will remember it forever."
"We were 16, not 14, when we received our first passports, we collected them at the passports office," she said. "It was the era of the Soviet Union, a different country. And it's a bit sad that no such events were held. I remember well how we were admitted to the Young Pioneer Organization, collected Komsomol badges. I am very pleased that there are children from Polatsk and even a girl from the school that I attended among the children to whom we handed out passports today. It's very important that children from different regions of the country were present."
