The Rzhev land is sacred to the people of Kazakhstan. It was here in December 1942 that the soldiers of 100 and 101 rifle brigades, formed in Almaty and Aktobe, covered themselves with unfading glory. During the combat operation, Kazakhstani divisions lost about 80% of their personnel, but fulfilled their mission. In honor of the heroic deed of our compatriots in 2010 on behalf of the Head of State to the 65th anniversary of the Great Victory, the Kazakh embassy, ​​together with the Aktobe Oblast Akimat in Rzhev, built a memorial complex for Kazakhstani soldiers. Since that time, Kazakhstanis, and in particular, the Aktobe residents, have visited this sacred place, which has become a sacred place for them. On the eve of the 73rd anniversary of the Great Victory, a complete reconstruction of the memorial was carried out. It was completed with a column, the granite tile was replaced, paving blocks were laid, and the illumination of the object was installed. In addition, the pedestrian "Native Land" was reconstructed, and benches, urns, granite vases, flowers were planted on the adjacent territory.
