Monument of Zhambyl Zhabaeyv in Almaty.

Monumental monuments in the cities of Kazakhstan.

“Leningraders, my children!
Leningraders, my pride!
Me in the stream of the steppe stream
A reflection of the Neva stream is visible.
If along the snow ridges
With a senile gaze, I glide
I see the arches of your bridges
Dawn of the Baltic blue,
he lights of the evening swarms
The gilded roofs of the point ...
Leningraders, my children!
Leningraders, my pride!”
