Alexei Mikhalevich paid for 20 tickets to the museum and invited like-minded people and journalists to see the exhibition "Ancient Vitebsk". In the hall of the museum, he said, why in the town hall decided to make this celebration: "I am a supporter of municipal government. And the Town Hall — a symbol of local government. I am sure that the local government will be on Belarus faster than we think. "
