The effectiveness of the CSTO peacekeeping mission in Kazakhstan is obvious to the whole world, said the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova on the air of the Russia-1 TV channel.
According to her, this fact can only be denied by those who do not follow the situation.
“Only those who do not follow the situation at all, who do not have the Internet, for example, or who simply don’t just have the desire to go in, read, watch and listen, may not recognize it. There is no other way, ”Zakharova emphasized.
Recall that protests against the background of rising gas prices in the republic began on January 2, later they escalated into riots. After that, the country’s president turned to the CSTO for help. On January 6, peacekeepers from Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan began to arrive in the republic.
Almost 10 thousand protesters have been detained in the country for the entire time; the damage from the riots could amount to $ 2-3 billion.
