TURKMEN ARMY UNITS NAMED AFTER PROMINENT GENERALS

A number of army units of the Armed Forces of Turkmenistan will be named after prominent generals under a decree issued by president of the republic Saparmurat Niyazov. As the Ashgabat correspondent of Turkmenistan.ru reports, three motor-rifle divisions from now on will have the names of Soltan Sanjar, Bayram han and Alp Arslan. The names of Gorogly beg, Cagry beg and Togrul beg will be conferred on three motor-rifle brigades. Another motor-rifle division was named after the father of the head of state – hero of Turkmenistan Atamurat Niyazov.

As the decree says, this step was, in fact, taken “with the aim of immortalizing the memory of heroes who have glorified the Turkmen nation with their heroic deeds, bravery for the independence of the sacred Turkmen soil and educating the military servicemen of the national army in the spirit of bravery and loyalty to the homeland”.
