President of Kazakhstan Presented Order to Well-Known Armourer Mikhail Kalashnikov

On Wednesday President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev presented in Astana a Dostyk (Friendship) Order of the 1st Class to the well-known Russian armourer Mikhail Kalshnikov who designed a legendary submachine gun. Nazarbayev stressed that the Order was being presented "taking Mikhail Kalashnikov's immense services into consideration". The president noted that the first Kalashnikov submachine gun was designed in Kazakhstan.

Kalashnikov arrived in Kazakhstan on May 2 at the invitation of the commander of the National Guard of the republic.

The Russian armourer also visited Matai station where, after being wounded at the front in 1941, he made his first submachine gun.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?

Venezuela may expect another Panama scenario from 1989
