On February 16, 2023, the Central State Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan hosted the opening of the exhibition "The Fiery Flame of Afghanistan", dedicated to the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan.

 The war in Afghanistan is one of the tragic pages of our modern national history, which will remain in the memory of not only war veterans, but also future generations. For those who survived the hell of the war, Afghanistan remained a deep and unhealed wound in the heart.

Soviet troops were on Afghan soil for a difficult and painful nine years - from December 25, 1979, to February 15, 1989. 

During these years, everything that a person is capable of, that he is able to withstand, has been tested. War veterans know this better than others. They had to drink a full cup of suffering, grief, despair, and difficulties. But they withstood all the tests, showing heroism and courage.

Despite everything, thanks to the friendly work of public organizations, veterans found their place in life and managed not only to preserve the bonds of military brotherhood, but also to strengthen them in civilian life, managed to overcome physical and moral injuries, relying on solidarity and mutual support.

Director of the Central Museum Rashida Kharipova expressed deep gratitude to the veterans of the war in Afghanistan, and stressed that everyone's sacred duty is to honor the memory of the fallen warriors and not forget about the war veterans, taking care of them. Our desire to never repeat the past, to prevent a new Afghanistan, should also be unchangeable and constant.

The event was attended by the Chairman of the Coordinating Council of Veterans and Invalids of the war in Afghanistan Murat Abdishukurov, head of the public movement "Our Home is Kazakhstan" Akbope Abylkassymova, veteran of the Afghan war, chairman of the public organization "Kok Bayrak" Auez Beissenbayev, veterans of the Afghan war Mukan Myrzakulov.

Students of the specialized school-lyceum "Arystan", a veteran of the border service Zamzagul Kenzhebayeva sang songs on patriotic themes.

At the end of the event, the guests visited the exhibition "The Fiery Flame of Afghanistan". More than 100 exhibits were exhibited from the museum's funds. Among them are documentary materials (photographs, letters, testimonies of eyewitnesses and participants of the events), awards and personal belongings of Kazakhstanis who died in the war.
