Protests in Kazakhstan broke out on January 2 in the city of Zhanaozen, Mangistau region, due to an increase in the price per liter of liquefied gas from 60 to 120 tenge (about 21 rubles). Two days later, protesters clashed with the police and the military in Alma-Ata and a number of other cities. Skirmishes also took place in Aktobe, Taraz, Aktau and other settlements. To suppress the unrest, the CSTO peacekeeping forces were sent to the republic.
