Regarding the type of aircraft I received the following reactions: feel free to contribute (EMAIL - mind to add the link to this page otherwise in a few years I might not know what you refer to!)

I'd say it is another Il-14. Compare the cockpit windows and the forward fuselage to the other Il-14 photo.

This is probably Il-14P CCCP-L1865 / CCCP-41865 (c/n 146000703). Found this on the Scramble Soviet Database www.scramble.nl/sovdb.htm enter the c/n to find out more..
- Peter Riool (aug.2011)

Among the information in the Scramble database (link above) I found the following information:
"(report 24apr2011) in basic blue Aeroflot c/s without any markings; initially used as a children's cinema in Park kultury at Svetlogorsk; later moved to ul. Oktyabrskaya (near the fire station) at Svetlogorsk; dismantled apr11 (l/n 24apr11), arrived on two trailers in the museum at Minsk-Borovaya 29apr11, in rather bad condition"
