25th anniversary of the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan
Today, on the 14th of February, there was an awarding of soldiers-internationalists in the meeting hall dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan, those people who with honor and patriotism fulfilled their international debt, and now work with us at the Almaty airport. Everyone was awarded with nominal congratulatory addresses and monetary rewards.
On behalf of Almaty International Airport JSC we sincerely and cordially congratulate you on this important event which is celebrated throughout the former Soviet Union!
War in Afghanistan is a page in our common history which is both tragic and heroic. This is our pain and pride. You honorably withstood the ordeals, did not give up on your military duty. We are very pleased that you have saved your fighting brotherhood, meet and help each other. We would like to make a low bow to you for the excellent service and for the contribution that you make today to the patriotic education of the younger generation.
And we bow with deep gratitude to the mothers who gave to the Homeland the most precious thing they had – their sons!
We wish you high, peaceful and clear blue sky, prosperity and well, good health and happiness!
Eternal memory and praise to our soldiers-internationalists and military units assisted to the Afghan army whose life ended in Afghanistan, and to all peacekeepers who died after withdrawal nowadays!
Dear soldiers-internationalists, please accept our warmest and best wishes for the holiday once again!
