President Berdimuhamedov visits the Memorial Complex

On October 6, on the occasion of Gurbanguly's Memorial Day, Berdimuhamedov visited the Halk hakydasy (People's Memory) memorial complex.

According to the state news agency TDH , on that day a tribute is paid to the heroes who fell on the battlefields of all wars, as well as to the victims of the catastrophic Ashgabat earthquake of 1948.

On behalf of the president, wreaths were laid at the monuments and a sadaka was given (charity dinner).

Due to the fact that this year's day fell on Sunday, the day off was postponed until Monday, October 7th.

Recall that the memorial complex was built on the outskirts of Ashgabat in 2014. The monuments Ruhy tagzym, Milletin ogullary and Baky sAlhrat were moved here from the city center. Also in 2014, the memory days of those who died in the Geoktepe battle, who died in the Second World War and the victims of the 1948 earthquake on a common Memorial Day were combined.
