Earlier it was reported that & nbsp; the authorities of Kazakhstan have not yet & nbsp; requested assistance within the & nbsp; framework of the CSTO, which includes six states & nbsp; ; Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and & nbsp; Tajikistan.
As the source of RIA Novosti clarified, the organization's charter allows the settlement of internal unrest, but & nbsp; this is done on the basis of a decision of a sovereign state.
One of the & nbsp; CSTO members & nbsp; & mdash; Kyrgyzstan & nbsp; & mdash; & nbsp; has already expressed its readiness, given the & nbsp; necessity, to provide the authorities of Kazakhstan with “ every possible support ''. In & nbsp; Bishkek stressed that & nbsp; taking place in & nbsp; republic & nbsp; violence, lawlessness and & nbsp; provocations, and & nbsp; also irresponsible calls for & nbsp; offenses & raquo; will not & nbsp; only not & nbsp; will not & nbsp; solve the pressing problems of the inhabitants of this country, but & nbsp; and & nbsp; will worsen the situation of the ordinary population.
Protests in & nbsp; Kazakhstan broke out on January 2 & nbsp; in the & nbsp; city of Zhanaozen, Mangistau region due to & nbsp; an increase in prices for & nbsp; & nbsp; liter of liquefied gas up to & nbsp; 120 tenge (about & nbsp; 21 rubles). Before & nbsp; the price of a liter of gas was 60 tenge. Two days later, in & nbsp; Alma-Ata and & nbsp; a number of other cities, protesters began to clash with the & nbsp; police and & nbsp; military. Clashes also took place in & nbsp; Aktobe, Taraz, Aktau and & nbsp; other settlements.
Against the background of protests, Tokayev promised to present a new package of proposals for & nbsp; political transformation of the country.
