WITH GRATITUDE TO THE PEOPLE

The first day of spring in Kazakhstan is marked by one of the brightest and kindest holidays – the Day of Gratitude. Solemn events, charity events, meetings are held all over the country. One of such meetings was held in the Library of Elbassy with the TV presenter of the channel "Kazakhstan" Irina Ten. The girl shared about the history of her family, her ancestors who arrived on the Kazakh land. 

Irina Ten was born on December 16, 1992. She graduated from the faculty of journalism of KazNU. She started her career in 2011 on the TV channel "Tan". Since 2012 he has been working on the national TV channel "Kazakhstan". Irina was born and grew up in the Kazakh environment, so she speaks Kazakh fluently for as long as she can remember.

At a meeting with young people, Irina told about the history of the resettlement of Koreans, whose deportation from the border areas of the Russian Far East began in September 1937. 172 thousand ethnic Koreans moved to the South Kazakhstan region, to the areas of the Aral Sea, Lake Balkhash and the Uzbek SSR.  

- My grandfather Ten Vladimir Fedorovich was born in 1926. In 1942, he was drafted into the Labor army and worked at mines in the Komi Republic until the end of the Great Patriotic war. Kyzylorda region, Aralsk town is my native land, on which has grown more than one generation of our family. Today Koreans are one of the largest ethnic diaspora of the Republic. This is about 100 thousand people - the eighth-largest diaspora among the nationalities living in Kazakhstan. Today, representatives of the Korean diaspora successfully realize their potential in various fields. All conditions have been created for the preservation and development of Korean culture and language, - said Irina Ten.

Today Kazakhstan unites 130 ethnic groups and 17 religious confessions. On the Day of Gratitude in organizations of various spheres will be talked about the foundations of a stable civil peace and interethnic harmony, which are impossible without the consolidating mission of the Kazakh nation. After all, despite the different ethnic roots, all residents of the country form a single community, a single nation of Kazakhstan.
