Russia is the historical homeland of the Kirghiz. Such a statement was made by the President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev during the congratulations of compatriots on the Victory Day, reports Knews.

The head of the republic, on May 9, took part in the rally-requiem, dedicated to the 72nd anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War.

"For us, the Kirghiz, Russia is our historical homeland. For each Kirghiz, the words Manas, Altai, Enesai (Yenisei - ed) are holy.. Our people remember their roots and will always be close to fraternal Russia, including during difficult days for it, "Atambayev said..

He also noted that although the main suspect in the terrorist act of April 3 this year in the subway of St. Petersburg was a native of Osh, "do not blame this on all Uzbeks and Kyrgyz". "After all, he was a citizen of Russia, like his father. And from 16 years he lived in Russia! Perhaps it was xenophobia and skinheads that prompted him to extremism, "the Kirghiz leader suggested..

In his opinion, it is in the Russian Federation in recent years "the voices of those who incite xenophobia, enmity between our fraternal peoples are hearing more and more loudly".

Atambayev recalled that almost every adult Kyrgyz man was called to the front in the Great Patriotic War, and more than a third of them did not return home. They "died, defending Russian cities and villages, freeing the territories of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus captured by the fascists," the president emphasized..

After the performance, he, together with his children and grandchildren, took part in the march of the "Immortal Regiment", paying tribute to his father-front-line soldier Sharshen Atambaev.
