In the Urdzhar region of East Kazakhstan region, almost 800 people and 280 cars were stuck in the snow. We must not put people in danger. “The elimination of the consequences of emergencies is several times more expensive than their prevention,” said the President of Kazakhstan.

It is necessary to involve such active representatives in the work, to teach others by their example, said the President of Kazakhstan.
