ACCOL. KAZINFORM - The staff of the Republican Center of Space Communication JSC (RCSC) annually celebrates Victory Day, paying tribute to the soldiers of the Great Patriotic War by laying flowers at the military obelisks installed in the center of Akkol, Kazinform correspondent reports.

“This year, despite the quarantine, we did not begin to change the tradition and in small numbers visited a monument to a native of Akkol, a veteran of the Great Patriotic War, Hero of the Soviet Union, the first Minister of Defense of the Republic of Kazakhstan, General Sagadat Nurmagambetov. Together with us today, his nephew, reserve lieutenant colonel Kelden Nurmagambetov laid flowers at the monument to his uncle” said Shokan Svoguzov, Deputy Chairman of the Board of the RCSC JSC.

In honor of the anniversary of the great Victory, the team of the space communications Center (SCC) "Akkol", which is the main ground control complex for Kazsat spacecraft, sang the song "Katyusha".

"The video is based on an obelisk for international soldiers in the city of Akkol and views of the pine forest where our center is located. Many of our specialists are people with military training, reserve officers, and for us this Victory day is very dear and understandable. This song we wanted to convey our gratitude to the veterans of the war with wishes for peace and prosperity", - said the Director of SCC "Akkol" Kairat Telgarin.

"This Victory Day turned out to be special, in terms of strength of spirit and emotions, perhaps, brighter than the rest. People, being isolated, realize the value of life, the value of the world that we got thanks to our fathers, grandfathers-winners. Look, today, more than ever, everyone shares stories of the war years of their relatives and friends; conducts flash mobs, online "Immortal regiments". Our team also made a contribution to the memory and gratitude of war veterans and continues its round-the-clock watch at the post of space communications of Kazakhstan", - said the "RCSC" JSC Chairman of the Board of Bauyrzhan Kudabayev.
