Dear Compatriots!

I cordially congratulate you on Victory Day!

This holiday is precious to each of us.

Our people made the invaluable contribution to the common victory. Kazakhstanis fought heroically on all fronts of the war, and almost half of them did not return home. Their courage and cast-iron will let preserve peace and quiet on Earth.

Thanks to total dedication of home front workers, Kazakhstan played a special role in supplying the Army. During the war years, hundreds of factories and plants were evacuated to our republic. We sent thousands of wagons of clothes and foodstuff to the front.

Our solemn duty is to remember the lessons of that terrible war and hold sacred the unparalleled feat of the older generation.

I wish veterans and home front workers good health, long life, good spirits!

Peace and well-being to all Kazakhstanis!
