Photo ID #25 issued by the MOOP (Ministry for Protecting the Public Order) of Belorussia to Police Senior Lieutenant V Pereverzev, freelance correspondent of the newspaper Na Strazhe Oktyabrya ("Guardian of the October [Revolution]").
The newspaper was an MVD / MOOP outlet. The internal pages show that the ID was issued by MOOP, valid through January 1966 and extended through 31 January 1970.
Interestingly, the newspaper was shot down in 1970 along with dozens of other republican Ministry of Interior newspapers in favor of a couple all-union media outlets (this was apparently one of the measures that led to a more centralized control over police and MVD). It was however resurrected in 1978, changed its name to a non-political Na Strazhe ("On Guard") in 1992, and continues publication in the communist-controlled Republic of Belarus even through these days.
The ID is in excellent condition, shows very minor wear to the spine and corners only.
