Scientific Secretary of the National Congress of historians, Doctor of Historical Sciences, professor Kabuldinov Ziyabek Ermukhanovich noted the formation of multi-ethnicity of Kazakhstan in his speech.
-Kazakh people as heirs of the great, steppe, nomadic and semi-nomadic civilization possessed unique qualities of tolerance, transparency and diplomacy in relation to other ethnic groups and people, what is difficult to observe from other countries of the world. This probably explains the peaceful settlement of Eurasians on Kazakh land, we should remember this fact.
Nation-forming Kazakhs is a nation, which was able to absorb the fragments of different people and countries in peace and the absence of dictatorship. Kazakhstan as a multicultural country differs from other countries of the world in terms of formation poly-ethnic state in a unique way.
Polyethnicity was formed during the military actions, diplomatic consolidations, illegal deprivation of statehood in some states, and it was formed in unique circumstances in Kazakhstan, when a few million people were on the territory of Kazakhstan against their will, during mass exiles, political deportation, political repressions and et cetera. Only in 30s-50s there were more than two million people in Kazakhstan. Therefore, those people who were exiled to Kazakhstan know the value of friendship, hospitality, tolerance, sociability and humanity of Kazakh people. Thus, Kazakhstan was predicted inter-ethnic chaos and mess in the 90s, but despite we got a peaceful, Eurasian and tolerant country which declares itself to the whole world- Kabuldinov Ziyabek Ermukhanovich said.
