The first team of young recruits for the ranks of the Armed Forces of Kazakhstan has departed for the Airborne Assault Brigade in Konaev from Nur-Sultan.
During the autumn campaign, more than 1,000 young men will be conscripted for mandatory military service from Nur-Sultan. The first batch of 40 individuals from Nur-Sultan heading to the city of Konaev has been announced by Ganı Artıqov, a representative of the Department of Defense Affairs in Nur-Sultan, according to Sarbaz.kz.
As noted by the Ministry of Defense, the first teams of new recruits are always sent to the Border Service of the National Security Committee of Kazakhstan. Their recruitment process has already been completed.
Conscript Aldiyar Naukan admitted that he had long dreamed of serving in the Airborne Assault Forces.
"I am glad that I was called up to serve in the elite forces," says the future paratrooper. "In my childhood, I watched the TV series 'Kök tarlandarı,' which featured scenes of parachute jumps, and it really fascinated me. My grandfather served in the army, and my father served in a tank brigade. Their stories were very motivating for me."
Representatives of the Public Association "Veterans of the Armed Forces," local authorities, parents, and relatives of the draftees participated in the farewell ceremony for the future paratroopers. The new conscripts from the capital will serve in the military unit 32363 of the Airborne Assault Forces.
