The Secretary of State of Kazakhstan said that the forces of the CSTO will be deployed locally

“CSTO forces will not be involved in all regions. They will locally provide security for vital facilities. This is a reasonable measure. We & nbsp; faced with & nbsp; a carefully planned and & nbsp; surprise attack by a whole army of radicals simultaneously in & nbsp; different regions of the country & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; Karin wrote in & nbsp; his Telegram channel.

He recalled that “the CSTO mission is exclusively peacekeeping and is designed for a short period of time.”

“ After the stabilization of the situation, the entire united peacekeeping contingent of the CSTO will be withdrawn from & nbsp; our country '', & nbsp; & mdash; added by the Secretary of State of Kazakhstan.

Mass protests in & nbsp; Kazakhstan began in & nbsp; the first days of 2022 & nbsp; & mdash; residents of the cities of Zhanaozen and & nbsp; Aktau in the & nbsp; west of the country opposed a two-fold increase in prices for & nbsp; liquefied gas. Later, protests spread to & nbsp; other cities, including & nbsp; including & nbsp; Alma-Ata, the old capital and & nbsp; the largest city of the republic: looting began there, militants attacked & nbsp; state institutions, took away weapons. In the & nbsp; response, the authorities imposed a state of emergency throughout the country until & nbsp; 19 & nbsp; January and & nbsp; began a counter-terrorist operation. According to the & nbsp; UN data, about & nbsp; 1 thousand people were injured during the protests in & nbsp; Kazakhstan. According to the & nbsp; updated data of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the republic, 16 security officials were killed.

On the morning of January 5 & nbsp; President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev dismissed the government and & nbsp; headed the Security Council. At the & nbsp; first meeting of the Security Council under his leadership, Tokayev characterized the situation in & nbsp; Kazakhstan as undermining the integrity of the state and & nbsp; said that & nbsp; asked for & nbsp; CSTO help & nbsp; in & nbsp; overcoming the terrorist threat. The CSTO Collective Security Council decided to send collective peacekeeping forces to & nbsp; Kazakhstan to normalize the situation in & nbsp; the country. On January 7 & nbsp; Tokayev said that & nbsp; terrorists, including & nbsp; including those who arrived from abroad & nbsp; continue to resist, and & nbsp; promised to destroy those who & nbsp; did not & nbsp; lay down their arms. In addition, the President noted that & nbsp; all the demands of citizens, expressed in & nbsp; peaceful forms, were heard.
