ASTANA, May 8. /TASS/. The feats of veterans during the Soviet Union’s Great Patriotic War against Nazi Germany predetermined Kazakhstan’s future, the country’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev said on Friday during the ceremony of laying flowers at the Eternal flame near the monument to Motherland defenders in Astana.
"We are a happy generation of fathers who won the war. It’s difficult to imagine what would have happened to us today, if our fathers and grandfathers had not emerged victorious in that war. Therefore, war veterans living alongside us deserve every little bit of attention on our pat not only on the day the holiday is marked but in everyday life too," Kazakhstan’s president said.
Taking part in the solemn ceremony of laying flowers were war veterans, the country’s Prime Minister, lawmakers and heads of various government agencies.
After the ceremony and a minute of silence Nazarbayev congratulated war veterans and attending citizens on the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. "Congratulations to you all on the occasion of this great holiday - Victory Day. A total of 85 countries took part in that war. Millions perished on the battlefields, just as many became disabled," the president noted.
Nazarbayev is flying to Moscow later on Friday, where he will held talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, take part in the summits of the CIS and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). On May 9, he will take part in the events dedicated to Victory Day.
