      Sorry, you're right.

      Many officers recall the times when "Ded" (that is how General Nurmagambetov was respectfully called in the army) was the Minister of Defense.
      His contribution to the military construction and reform of the army of Kazakhstan, despite the "dashing nineties", can hardly be overestimated.
      I think we should name a major street in Astana, a metro station in Almaty named after a hero. Such a person has earned it his whole life.
      Eternal memory to the Hero! Imanda Bolsyn!

      Oh, Grandfather, we won’t miss you. Unrestrained.
      Your son and a couple of his friends built your cottage with your own hands, although only a colonel from the GU of construction and cantonment needed to give a hint ... Yes, and the cottage is in an un prestigious area ... The average bureaucrat in the akimat has a cooler cottage ... And hell would come up with an offer of help to the colonel, he knew how it would end ...
      How he fought in the government for benefits to officers ...
      Bad for us. Woe to us ...

          There are no more of them, and soon they will not be at all. But why are they only remembered when they die? Maybe because it is convenient to make beautiful and politically correct speeches "on the occasion of death" without fear that the deceased will get up in indignation and cut off? They knew the unadorned truth.

          For centuries we have been living nearby, everything has been, both bad and good.
          Good more on the order. Russia and Russian brothers need to understand that Kazakhstan is not a vassal and has its own interests. In the vast majority of cases, interests coincide. Where there is disagreement, look for reasonable compromises. Keep Natsik on both sides under control.
          And at the level of ordinary people - with whom, for example, do I mess with ... ?!
          My uncle’s uncle has a Russian wife, his brother’s daughter is married to a Russian, Germans, Koreans, Uzbeks, Kyrgyz, Tatars are close relatives.

        Well, what do you want? The man was Soviet and probably not a "party member", but a communist. This is now all in Nur Otan, polls, and ask anyone why you are going to work in the prosecutor's office of the akimat dor. police, etc. words about service to the people never leave the lips, but there are green pieces of paper in their eyes. It's sad, our grandfathers had a goal, they had faith, and we only have to earn money to snatch, stir up, break through and squeeze. Somehow and somewhere we turned the wrong way.

    Thank you brothers for your sympathy. Grandfather was handsome; he always found time for conversations with young people. We still have aces, Talgat Begeldinov, for example - 305 sorties on the Il-2 attack aircraft !!! In his first battle, not knowing the rank, he shot down the famous German ace on Messer. Today, the only living military hero twice is the Soviet Union. At 80, he had an apiary, with which he took 3 tons (!!!) of honey. A man of great modesty, strong but pleasant, with a dry, strong handshake. My good neighbor. soldier
