Tokayev: We survived a coup attempt.. Putin: Our mission in Kazakhstan...

Yesterday, President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev said that his country had survived a coup attempt orchestrated by what he called a “single group”, noting that order had been restored in Kazakhstan, and his government would continue to pursue what he described as “terrorists.”

In a speech to a meeting of the Collective Security Treaty Organization led by Russia via video technology, Tokayev announced that the large-scale “anti-terrorist” operation would soon end.

Tokayev revealed that “the militants abandoned their plans to seize the presidential palace after learning of the arrival of the CSTO treaty forces,” numbering about two thousand soldiers.

Tokayev addressed the international community, pledging to provide “evidence” about what happened in the near future, stressing that the killing of civilians and security forces in the violence is under investigation.

In turn, the Kazakh Foreign Minister, Erlan Karen, confirmed that his country “faced a hybrid terrorist attack whose goal may be to destabilize the country and then carry out a coup later.”

The Kazakh minister refused to place the course of the events in Kazakhstan within the framework of the “color revolutions” similar to what Ukraine and Georgia witnessed before, saying that “this is not possible because the conditions in them are different.”

Karen stressed that there was “a conspiracy supported by internal forces and some external forces, and that both Kazakh citizens and foreigners participated in the attacks.”

For its part, the National Security Committee of Kazakhstan announced the neutralization of two “extremist cells” in Alma-Ata, whose members participated in the riots that took place in the country, after the arrest of others who were seized with weapons and large sums of money in local and foreign currencies.

It is noteworthy that Kazakhstan has been witnessing a wave of protests for days that started with economic demands that turned into violent clashes between demonstrators and security forces in a number of cities, including Almaty, the country’s largest city, before the government declared a state of emergency in the country.

Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that “the mission of the Russian-led military force deployed in Kazakhstan will end soon,” stressing that this force “came at an official request from the country’s leadership.”

“The camp led by Moscow will not allow others to destabilize it and will not allow color revolutions,” Putin added.
