Today we have gathered to pay tribute to the victims of those tragic events. It is not coincidence that organizers of the given action are young activists of Assembly of People of Kazakhstan as our problem to explain to young generation the sources and the reasons of tragedy which was experienced by our people.


All Kazakh people, all ethnic minorities today proudly carry the flag of unity under the flag of the Assembly of People of Kazakhstan. We have to protect our unity" Yusup Keligov said.

"Many ethnicities were named enemies of the people and deported to the Kazakh land, and here in Kazakhstan they found a new home, a second Motherland. Today we remember that feat of the Kazakh people when they shared their shanyrak and dastarkhan with all people who were deported to our land" representative of the youth organization noted.
