Kazakhstan and Russia Held Discussions Cooperation of Volunteers in Nur-Sultan
Caspian region countries plan to unite efforts of search and volunteer movements as part of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory. Experts from Kazakhstan and Russia held discussions on the way of cooperation in Nur-Sultan. Director of Caspian-Eurasia Center in Astrakhan, Ksenia Tyurenkova, said that Russia is ready to share with neighboring states its successful experience on implementing projects that were held as part of the Year of Volunteer in Russia in 2018. One of the leaders on the development of the volunteer movement in the country was the Astrakhan region. Many programs were launched while the number of volunteers reached over 16,000 during the previous event.
“2020 has been declared a Year of Volunteer in Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. The thing is that search teams, as well as military-patriotic organizations, are also types of volunteer organizations. The Russian Federation and its search movements express great interest to cooperate with the Kazakh search teams. I think that the search movements are a good opportunity for collaboration as well. Such movements include restoring the names and preserving the memory of the fallen soldiers. This is of great importance to everyone, who was affected by the great catastrophe and witnessed the Great Victory,” said Director of Caspian-Eurasia Center, Russia, Ksenia Tyurenkova
