ASSYLBEK KOZHAKHMETULY, BOOK AUTHOR:
- I visited archives and discovered many valuable materials about forgotten heroes and local names that were lost. The publication also includes previously unknown facts about the lives of our prominent figures, such as, for example, Saken Seifullin who once lived here and famous musician Amre Kashaubayev. I learned very interesting fact from the life of Ilyas Moldazhanov who was one of the prominent members of the Alash movement. He worked as a postman in Steklyanka village.
Currently, Beskaragai district is actively developing. As part of the Tugan Zher program, local entrepreneurs are constructing new buildings and reconstructing historical facilities. Local officials are implementing several projects worth more than 10 million Tenge by the end of the year.
