Kazakhstan chooses 12 most beautiful servicewomen26 may 2015, 15:22
As the names of the 12 most beautiful service women in Kazakhstan have been announced, one is only left wondering what they should spend more time on: training or hairdos.
Surely, all of these women are attractive. And this did not go unnoticed in the Ministry of Defense. In fact, they were so astounded by this, that they decided to have the voting done right on the website of the Ministry!
Considering that a total of 255,725 votes were cast online in a country of 17 million people, it is safe to conclude that the competition received quite an attention.
"Batyr Arular" is the first Kazakhstan competition among female representatives of the country's armed forces and, given the popularity, probably not the last. 123 women from all types of armed forces of Kazakhstan participated, as well as from the central office of the Ministry of Defense. And 12 of them were lucky to be chosen.
Before the official awarding, the contest finalists needed to demonstrate their fighting techniques and combat training. Just to be safe: this is not just some beauty pageant; there is a patriotic agenda behind it.
Does anybody else hear: “Hey, prove your combat readiness, but only if you are pretty!”
Madina Amanzholova with 14613 of votes is among the winners. She works as the head of administrative and economic unit of the Department of Defense of South Kazakhstan Oblast.
