This was announced during a seminar on onomastics in Atyrau.

The event was held under the leadership of the chairman of the culture committee of the Ministry of Culture and Sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan Akan Abduliev, the regional communications service of the Atyrau region reports.

The event aimed at clarifying the rules of onomastics was attended by the deputy akim of Atyrau region Bakytgul Khamenova, heads of departments in the field of onomastics under akimats of Aktobe, West Kazakhstan and Mangistau regions, deputy akims of all districts of Atyrau region.

The main goal of the event is to promote guidelines for organizing onomastic work in the country, the Roadmap for 2022-2025 and an updated list of Historical Figures for renaming ideologically outdated settlements and constituent parts.

“Similar seminars are held in all regions. We held meetings in Akmola, Almaty, Zhambyl and Atyrau regions to take stock of the seminar. Employees of Atyrau, Aktobe, West Kazakhstan and Mangistau regions gathered here and discussed their recommendations. Until 2022-2025, it is planned to streamline the names of ideologically outdated streets, settlements and sections through the Roadmap. For the 30th anniversary of the country's independence, many names have been renamed, but there is still a lot of work to be done. At the end of these meetings, we will collect all the proposals and finalize them by creating a methodological group,” said Akan Abduliyev.
