Attacks can be not only military, but also informational, psychological, political, economic and other in nature. Therefore, the Armed Forces the forces of Kazakhstan must be ready for any challenges. This is the main requirement for a modern professional army. We have only one Motherland – Kazakhstan!

“To do this, it is fundamentally important to equip it with high-tech weapons and high-quality military equipment, to fully provide it with ammunition. In my recent Address, I set a priority task: to create a production cycle with a high degree of localization. Armored vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, modern small arms – we are all that “We can and must produce them here, in our country.

The strength of the army is in discipline! And here the role of commanders is paramount. It is necessary to maintain a high level of training, coherence and strict order in the Armed Forces. Each soldier must perfectly master the weapons entrusted to him and equipment, skillfully use them in battle, show determination, courage and bravery,” the President concluded.
