On Tuesday, January 11, 2022, the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev informed that the troops deployed by the Russia-led forces would begin leaving the unrested Central Asian country in two days. If, somehow, it will take time, then most probably the troops would leave the country within ten days.
While referring to the work done by the troops, Tokayev asserted,” the main task of the CSTO peacekeeping military forces has been successfully completed and directs that the troops of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation help us out.
While addressing the government and parliament through videoconference call, PM said,” The phased withdrawal of the CSTO united peacekeeping will begin within two days from the Central Asian Country. Moreover, for more time, it will take only 10 days to leave the country.
There was a huge crash between the government opponent and security forces, and the massive destruction has occurred at the larges city of Almaty was almost unrecognizable. Moreover, at around 2000, troops were deployed when the crisis in the country was at its peak over the last week.
Further, unrest and enormous violence have erupted in Kazakhstan over the last week. There was a massive crash between the protestors and government forces in which dozens of people were killed.
The cause behind the outbreak of protest in the country was the hike of fuel and energy prices in the country. It was also reported that there was also a coup attempt to fuel the protest by some foreign terrorists, which left dozens dead. But the attempt was defeated and failed by the Russian and CSTO troops.
Further, to control the unrest in the country, the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan has requested the Russian President Vladimir Putin to help them out in the critical situation. The protestors have also vandalized various government buildings and caused massive destruction in public places.
Prime Minister Toyokeva also highlighted that to counter the protest, their forces have only pointed out and held on gunpoint those who have to create destruction and not target those who have protested peacefully.
