The “counter – terrorism operation” has almost ended throughout Kazakhstan

The situation has stabilized in 14 regions of Kazakhstan during this period.

“Measures are being taken in the city of Almaty, Almaty and Zambil to identify and apprehend terrorists and others involved in other criminal activities during riots,” the committee said.

Protests against the sharp rise in liquefied gas prices reportedly began on January 2 in Zhanaozen, in the southwest of the country.

In the following days, however, protests took over the whole of Kazakhstan, and political demands began to emerge alongside economic ones. The protesters demanded, among other things, the complete departure of former President Nursultan Nazarbayev and his clan.

Tokajev requested the deployment of a contingent of the Russian-led military alliance on the evening of January 5, when government forces had effectively lost control of Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city.
