‘Seven Facets of the Great Steppe’ article by President of Kazakhstan

A new article by President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev titled ‘Seven Facets of the Great Steppe’ is dedicated to the history of Kazakhstan. The article was published on the official website of Akorda. The article states that people of Kazakhstan need to realize and accept their history in all its versatility and multidimensionality. The chronicles contain many well-known facts, including the political and economic historical changes pursued by Kazakh ancestors in (the vast spaces of) Eurasia. President Nazarbayev focuses on the equestrian culture, ancient metallurgy and the Great Silk Road. The president also proposes to start work on major projects such as ‘Archive 2025,’ ‘Great Names of the Great Steppe’ and ‘Anthology of the Steppe Folklore.’

NURSULTAN NAZARBAYEV, PRESIDENT OF KAZAKHSTAN:

 - A year and a half ago, I published an article titled ‘The Course towards the Future: Modernization of Kazakhstan’s Identity’ which received a wide response from society. I consider new projects as a continuation of the ‘Modernization of Kazakhstan’s Identity’ program. The new components of the nationwide program will update the centuries-old heritage of our ancestors making it understandable and demanded in the digital age.
