A handful of Belarusian land from the grave of Hero of the Soviet Union, soldier-liberator Zhumagali Kaldykarayev was brought by his relatives to his homeland, where the solemn ceremony of laying the capsule in the bas-relief of the list of names at the monument "Eternal Flame" was held. Akim of the region Eraly Tugzhanov, relatives and friends of the Mangystau hero took part in the solemn ceremony.
On May 2, within the framework of the 72nd anniversary of the Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War, the motor race of memory in honor of Zhumagali Kaldykarayev started from Zhanaozen city. Participants of the action - the family and friends of the hero, overcame thousands of kilometers and passed through years of weary expectations in order to honor the memory of the deceased relative and countryman. Guests from Kazakhstan brought a handful of land from Mangystau at his grave and performed a funeral service according to Muslim custom. On the way back, the participant took a handful of Belarusian land from a mass grave where they found their final place for rest, so that in this way the hero returned to his homeland at least.
"Our fellow countryman returned to his homeland after 72 years. The war can not be considered complete until the remains of the last soldier are buried. Memory eternal to everyone who died during the Great Patriotic War, who did not return. To all who have gone through the war and have lived to our days - a low bow!" - Akim of the region Eraly Tugzhanov addressed those present at the memorial meeting.
The memory of the hero-countryman was honored with a minute of silence and a three-time gun salvo. Then, with all the honors, the earth was taken from the grave of the hero of the Great Patriotic War Zhumagali Kaldykaraev in the last way, to the eternal memory of grateful descendants.
