Republican campaign ‘Ak oramal’ means white kerchief from Kazakh language. Thousands of women and mothers across the country paid tribute to the victims of nuclear tests. In Astana, after a minute of silence in honor of victims, participants laid flowers at the monument ‘Otan Ana’. The event was dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the closure of the Semipalatinsk test site. Over the years, more than 450 explosions tests have been carried out on that site. Campaign ‘Ak oramal’ is not accidental. Since the ancient times, it means purity of mind and peace.

 

Zulfiya BERNEEVA, CHAIRPERSON, COUNCIL OF MOTHERS, PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY OF KAZAKHSTAN:

 

Our campaign ‘Ak oramal’ is taking place these days on the 25th anniversary of the great date of closure of the Semipalatinsk test site. From this year, the campaign is sweeping the country. And I think that this will be an annual, long-awaited and unifying event.
