Today marks the 79th anniversary of the end of the Great Patriotic War, the most terrible and bloody war in human history. From 1941 to 1945, Kyrgyzstan literally became the forge of victory, providing the war front with what it needed. More than 30 industrial enterprises were evacuated to the republic, where they began to produce the necessary products for the front in the shortest possible time.

Agricultural work continued apace in the fields and collective farms. A total of 303.6 thousand tons of bread and 22.3 thousand tons of potatoes were harvested. Around 74 thousand tons of grain and more than 8 thousand tons of meat were contributed to the defense foundation. Additionally, the army received more than 54 thousand selected horses from collective and state farms.

Kyrgyzstan became a new home for hundreds of thousands of evacuees, including many orphanages. On the battlefields of the Great Patriotic War, 363.2 thousand Kyrgyz citizens fought, with more than 130 thousand of them laying down their lives.

More than 150 thousand Kyrgyz soldiers were awarded orders and medals for their courage and bravery, with 74 receiving the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, and 21 being awarded the Order of Glory of three degrees.

Time passes, but we have no right to forget the price our ancestors paid for the Great Victory. This day serves as a strong, unbreakable thread between us, the present generation, and the generation of frontline soldiers, workers, and victors.

We honor the selflessness and titanic efforts of the home-front workers and children of war who, together with the adults, contributed to the approaching Great Victory.

We are proud of the courage and steadfastness of the victorious people and cherish the memory of the fallen.

We salute veterans for the opportunity to live and raise children under a peaceful sky, to breathe freedom, and to rejoice in each new day. We bow to you, veterans, for the peaceful skies above our heads! May every spring be peaceful! And let our children learn about war only from the pages of history.


Happy May 9th! 

Happy Victory Day!
