Social and economic development of the rayon

About the rayon
In the 18th century tsar's army generals Kolpakovsky and Kaznakov went upstream the Irtysh river. Following the army the military fortresses Bolshaya-Bukon, Kaznakovka, Samarka, Baty, Akzhar were appeared. They were built by the tsar Decree as well as in 1780 Kokterek fortress now Kokpekty. All those fortresses were known as the lined Cossacks.

Earlier the thick poplar and hawthorn groves grew on the left bank of the Kokpektinka river. Hence the name of Kokterek fortress came from, that means "the green poplar". Years went by, that groove was constantly cut by the residents down and used as a building material. The fortress was situated in the east of the present market-place. There was a ditch around the fortress, the tracks of which are seen till now.

In March 12, 1898 the Kokterek settlement was suffered from heavy flood, a lot of houses were damaged. After that natural disaster the Cossacks allowed the residents to settle on the right bank of the river. From that time on the military town was renamed in Kokpekty settlement.

The revolution of 1905 shook the tsar's principles. In 1909 Stolypin was in Omsk and Kereku now Pavlodar looked over the immense Kulyndinski steppes and on the arrival to Petersburg declared the reform concerning peasants' resettlement in remote Kazakh steppes. So the following settlements were appeared: Ivanovka, Romanovka, Prokhladnoe, Olegovka, Vozdvizhenka, Preobrazhenka.

In 1929 the territory of the present rayons was united with formation of Samarski rayon with the centre in Bolshaya-Bukon settlement, and in 1930 it was divided into two rayons: Samarski (Samarka settlement) and Kokpektinski (Kokpekty settlement).

The Kazakh virgin soil was 50 years. The silent steppe valley was alive. The virgin soil was ploughed in our rayon as well. The Kuraily valley was full of voices and tractors' and machines' noises.

There were a lot of youth to plough Kazakhstan's virgin and long-fallow lands.
