The history of "Egemen Kazakhstan" begins with the first issue of Ushqyn newspaper published on December 17, 1919, in the city of Orenburg. The name of the newspaper was changed several times: "Enbek Tuy" in 1920, "Enbekshi Qazaq" in 1921, "Sotsialdy Qazaqstan" in 1932, "Socialistik Qazaqstan" in 1937. In 1991, the newspaper was renamed "Egemendi Qazaqstan".

On January 1, 1993, after an extensive discussion at the suggestion of Editor-in-Chief Abish Kekilbayev, the ending "-di" was removed from the first word of the newspaper name. Thus, it changed to "Egemen Qazaqstan".

Since September 2016, the media has had a new color-format design. In various periods, the editorial office was located in Kyzylorda and Almaty. In 1999, it moved to Astana.

Over the years, the newspaper was headed by such renowned Kazakh writers and political figures as Smagul Sadvakasov, Zhusipbek Aimauytov, Beimbet Mailin, Saken Seifullin, Mukhtar Auezov, Turar Ryskulov, Oraz Zhandosov, Gabit Musrepov, Kasym Sharipov, Sapar Baizhanov, Balgabek Kydyrbekuly, Sherkhan Murtaza, Abish Kekilbayev, Nurlan Orazalin, Ualikhan Kalizhan, Yerzhuman Smaiyl, Sauytbek Abdrakhmanov.

Since July 2016, it has been published under the leadership of Darkhan Kydyrali. The newspaper has a network of its own correspondents in all regions of the country, as well as a branch office in Almaty. The newspaper's circulation exceeds 200,000 copies.

It should be mentioned that Kazinform International News Agency and Kazakhstanskaya Pravda Newspaper will mark the 100th anniversary in 2020.

Brazil’s version of Trump: why is it a «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align: justify;">A racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a pro-torturer. Because of the profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such an image and was even considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker claiming that she was too ugly to be worth of raping. What is more, he said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why did Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How did such an «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president?<br /> </p>

In industrialized countries, one of the most important indicators of the economy is the level of development of the machine-building industry. Independent Kazakhstan, striving to achieve ambitious goals, is making great efforts to develop machine building in the process of diversifying its economy.
