Kazakhstan is known in the world not only for the size of its territory, but also for its natural resources. Of the 118 elements of the periodic table, 99 were identified from its depths. According to scientists from the leading countries of the world, Kazakhstan ranks sixth in the world in terms of reserves of natural resources - oil, gas, titanium, magnesium, tin, uranium, gold and other non-ferrous metals. It ranks first in tungsten production and reserves, second in chrome and phosphorus ore reserves, fourth in lead and molybdenum, and eighth in total iron ore reserves. Geology is the only way to dive deep into the earth's surface and unlock the secrets of Mother Earth. The history of the development of geology in Kazakhstan is closely connected with the names of such national scientists as K.I. Satbayev, Z.A. Aitaliyev, A.K. Kayipova. As a result of the fruitful work of scientists engaged in the search, exploration and production of resources necessary for the entire society, 6,000 mineral deposits have been discovered. They are the main source of income and economic development of the country, and also play an important role in the world market. Today, minerals are not only a source of energy, but are also used as raw materials for the production of various alloys, building materials, chemicals and other things that are very necessary for our daily life. The Central State Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan is waiting for you at the opening ceremony of the new exhibition!

The Central State Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan opens the exhibition “Zhanymdy Zharalagan Afghanistan (Afghanistan that wounded my soul)”, dedicated to the 35th anniversary of the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan on February 14, 2024, at 15.00.

the exhibition “Zhanymdy Zharalagan Afghanistan Soviet troops spent nine hellishly difficult years in Afghanistan from December 25, 1979 to February 15, 1989.

About 620 thousand people served in the troops that were stationed in Afghanistan, including 22 thousand from Kazakhstan. 15,526 people died, including 924 Kazakhstanis. 333 people (according to the General Staff of the USSR Ministry of Defense), including 21 Kazakhstanis, were captured and disappeared.

But for the relatives of the victims, this war did not end with the withdrawal of troops on February 15, 1989. Their mental wound is still bleeding, and even time cannot heal it. The lessons of Afghanistan have prompted every state and every people to resolve their issues independently, and for the benefit of their people. Because it was not those who started this bloodshed who died on the battlefield, but ordinary soldiers. And our exhibition speaks about this.

The purpose of the exhibition is to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan, to educate a new generation of soldiers and youth using the patriotic example of soldiers and officers who fought on the Afghan front, and to convey to everyone that war is not a means to solve political problems.

The exhibition will feature documentary materials, awards and personal belongings of fallen soldiers and surviving soldiers and officers from Kazakhstan (photos of witnesses and participants, letters and documents) who served in Afghanistan. It is expected that the military uniforms and equipment of Soviet soldiers and their opponents will be of particular interest.

The exhibition was organized with the active participation of the Union of Veterans of Local Wars and Military Conflicts "Combat Brotherhood" and the Union of Veterans of the Afghan War in Almaty.
