Leonid Slutsky

Moscow never raised the question of the return of the lands of Kazakhstan under Russian control. This was stated by the head of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky on Wednesday, February 1, reports “Interfax”.

“In the State Duma never sounded this idea. I can assure you that neither in the parliamentary groups, or relevant committees on international Affairs and CIS Affairs — such proposals could not be”, — he stressed.

According to him, in recent days the Ukrainian mass media widely disseminated by the statements of the member of the Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian integration and ties with compatriots Paul Shperova, attributing his territorial claims to Kazakhstan. At the same time, Slutsky emphasized, Shperova words were taken out of context, he wasn’t talking about the revision of the existing borders between the two countries.

“Kazakhstan is fraternal for Russia, the state closest partner in the Eurasian economic Union and the political, trade-economic and humanitarian spheres. Between our countries cannot and should not cause any stress, especially on such a far-fetched and unreasonable about it,” he concluded.

26 Jan Sperow on the round table in the state Duma said that Russia must protect the interests of their compatriots around the world, including living in Kazakhstan. In the Ukrainian press after that there were reports that the Russian Parliament talking about territorial claims to Kazakhstan.

In February 2014 the leader of the LDPR faction Vladimir Zhirinovsky proposed to create a Central Asian Federal district of Russia, which would include Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan.
