Sobchak is confident that what was happening was inevitable due to the behavior of Nazarbayev and his successor. She recalled last year’s protests in Belarus, and also interviewed an opposition politician in Kazakhstan. “The picture of the fall of an empire, some kind of stable conservative system that collapses in one second, is mesmerizing. I’m not for, of course, I’m sharply opposed. But I look from the side and I can’t look away, “- said Ksenia.
