Kyrgyzstan said that five citizens of the country were detained in Kazakhstan

Five Kyrgyz citizens were recently detained in Kazakhstan, TASS reports, citing information from the Kyrgyz Foreign Ministry.

The ministry noted that the Kyrgyz side “continues to work to provide assistance” to citizens of the republic who wish to return to their home country. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kyrgyzstan is always in touch with compatriots living in Nur-Sultan, Kostanay, Petropavlovsk, Karaganda and other cities of the neighboring state.

The ministry explained that consular and legal assistance to fellow citizens is now complicated against the background of anti-terrorist measures, restrictions on movement, as well as due to the lack of Internet and telephone communications.

The Kyrgyz side is providing humanitarian assistance to the citizens of the republic who live in Alma-Ata and find themselves in a difficult situation, the department stressed.

It is also noted that since the beginning of 2022, with the assistance of the Kyrgyz Ministry of Foreign Affairs, over 60 citizens of Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan have been removed from Kazakhstan.

Earlier it was reported that 1461 Russians were delivered from Kazakhstan to their homeland by aircraft of the military transport aviation of the Russian Federation over the weekend.

We add that on Monday, during the summit of the CSTO countries, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Kazakhstan was faced with a threat to its statehood, he also called the events in the republic an act of aggression, which had to be responded to immediately. Putin stressed that during the riots in Kazakhstan, “Maidan technologies” were used.

At the same time, he said that the country’s authorities will protect all their citizens who did not participate in the riots and “are unfairly brought to justice.”
