The veterans stated their preparedness to patrol the streets, in case of necessity. “Today, when somebody is trying to interfere with our peaceful happy life once again and thrust hostility and distrust between the residents of our country, we cannot keep silent and stand aside. We still have clear memories of what we had to face in our life. We will not let our children and grandchildren experience such horror,” the Union addressed law-enforcement authorities. The veterans noted that "Afghan soldiers" have the needed military experience, strength and desire to preserve security of Atyrau residents.
