Do those medals on veterans’ chests during Victory Day eventually end up on the sidewalks for sale? Funny that they should be sold next to silverware and books on Sufiism. See also the memorials that are in every small town throughout Kazakhstan to remember the courage the Red Army soldiers had while fighting during WWII.WWII memorialWWII soldiers
