“Tynyshtyk kuzetshisi”, December 23, 24
The consequences of the terrible war were shared by the soldiers who fought on the front, as well as the workers who sacrificed their lives for the Great Victory in the village. Why didn't Demesin, who died in those dark times to protect his village from evil, be included in the list of victims of the war?! Maybe there was another reason for the hero's courage?!
