On January 6 and 7, Vladimir Putin held several telephone conversations with colleagues from other countries of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), including with the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev on the situation in this state, writes TASS, citing the press secretary of the Russian leader Dmitry Peskov.

Putin also talked with President of Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov, Head of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, leader of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon and Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan.

The Russian president discussed with other politicians joint actions within the framework of the CSTO mandate to combat international terrorism and to ensure order and security of citizens of Kazakhstan, the Kremlin spokesman said.

In addition, according to him, the head of the RF Ministry of Defense Sergei Shoigu, from the moment the operation of the CSTO peacekeeping forces began, constantly reports to Putin on the progress of the transfer of peacekeepers to Kazakhstan and the fulfillment of the assigned tasks.

Since the beginning of the year, protests and riots have continued in the republic. A state of emergency has been declared.

Earlier today Tokayev addressed the people and promised to bring the bandits and terrorists to criminal responsibility. The search for intruders will be carried out by a special interdepartmental group.

It was also reported that nine Il-76s with Russian peacekeepers landed at the Alma-Ata airport. In addition to the paratroopers, the planes brought equipment and weapons.
