The topic of the Russian language in Kazakhstan became resonant after the nationalists began to carry out the so-called “language raids”. During them, activists checked the knowledge of the Kazakh language by employees of shops and government agencies and forced Russian-speaking citizens to apologize on camera. Later, journalists caught the leader of the “language patrols” Kuat Akhmetov in relations with the authorities of Kazakhstan.
After that, member of the Mazhilis (lower house of parliament) committee on social and cultural development Berik Abdygaliuly said that all signs and signs in Kazakhstan should be translated into Kazakh. Abdygaliuly noted that such a decision was made in view of the concerns of voters about the situation of the Kazakh language in the country.
