On November 23, the Russian House in Nur-Sultan (39, Kenesary Street) will open the exhibition "Alexander Nevsky and His Image in Historical Memory", timed to coincide with the 800th anniversary of this outstanding ancient Russian statesman and military leader.

The unique historical and documentary exposition was prepared by the Representative Office of Rossotrudnichestvo in Kazakhstan and the Russian Historical Society. It is based on archival documents, icons, engravings, drawings that tell about the personality of Alexander Yaroslavich, his deeds, as well as the canonization of the prince and the embodiment of his image in the cinematic masterpiece Sergei Eisenstein .

The exhibition reflects in detail the key stages in the life of Alexander Nevsky: the victory over the Swedes in the Battle of the Neva in 1240, the defeat of the Germans in the Battle of the Ice in 1242, the reign in Veliky Novgorod, Kyiv and Vladimir, and, finally, the alignment relations with the Golden Horde and the Great Steppe.

During his trips to the Horde, Alexander visited the territory of modern Kazakhstan, where he talked a lot with nomads, studied their way of life, traditions and customs, traveled along the shores of Lake Balkhash, spurs The Tan Shan Mountains, the foothills of the Trans-Ili Alatau.

It is difficult to disagree with the opinion of many authoritative historians that during these trips, Alexander sought, first of all, to establish interreligious and interethnic peace, to improve relations and between Russia and the Great Steppe, East and West. These diplomatic efforts were highly valued both in antiquity and in modern times. We can safely say that the memory of Alexander Nevsky unites the peoples of Russia and Kazakhstan.    

During the Great Patriotic War, this memory of the prince-warrior, the prince-defender inspired our soldiers and officers. One of the highest signs of military prowess was the Order of A. Nevsky. In 1944, it was received by a Kazakh attack pilot, twice Hero of the Soviet Union Talgat Bigeldinov, who showed outstanding skills in air battles in the sky over Ukraine.

And the senior lieutenant Hero of the Soviet Union Makhmet Kairbaev received this award in 1945 for personal courage and unparalleled courage.
