“We will comply with the sanctions. Despite the fact that we are part of an economic union with Russia, Belarus and other nations, we are also part of the international community. Therefore, the last thing we want is for Kazakhstan to be subject to secondary US and EU sanctions,” said the President’s First Deputy Chief of Staff Timur Suleimenov.
Russia is credited for saving the regime of Kazakhstan as recently as January 2022 when massive protests took place in Kazakhstan over a sudden increase in gas prices.
That time, Russia had sent its forces to deal with the violent protests in Kazakhstan.
