In his congratulatory address to the veterans and guests of the ceremony, the President of Kazakhstan particularly noted the contribution of Kazakhstanis to the Victory over the fascist invaders.

"Kazakhstan sent more than 1.8 million people to the front, half of whom have not returned. They showed courage in the war. 500 of our compatriots received the title Hero of the Soviet Union. Workers of the rear to provide the front with armament, food and ammunition worked day and night tirelessly," said Nursultan Nazarbayev.

The President of Kazakhstan stressed that the present generation can consider itself happy, because it has not seen the horrors of the war.

"Our grandfathers survived the revolution and repression, our fathers – the Great Patriotic War. Only our generation lives in peacetime, and this is the great merit of our veterans. Thank you very much!" said Nursultan Nazarbayev.

At the end of the ceremony, the Head of State held informal talks with veterans of the war and the workers of the rear.

"When you are around, we – your children and grandchildren ­– feel more relaxed. We are fueled by your heroism, learn firmness from you, how to be patriots of the Motherland, to love the land of your fathers and fight to the last drop of blood and be ready to sacrifice your life for our Fatherland – for our beloved Kazakhstan. I congratulate you on the occasion, dear friends! I wish you good health, successes and all the best," concluded the President of Kazakhstan.

In turn, the front-line soldiers cordially thanked Nursultan Nazarbayev for the attention and care shown.
