(United States): Anatoly Antonov, the Russian Ambassador to the United States, has emphasised that instead than undermining the situation in Kazakhstan, all democratic forces should work to restore peace.
“Radicals with dehumanising views have launched a campaign against Kazakhstan. Thousands of jihadists and marauders attempted to ‘undermine’ the legal system. They use weapons against people who are not members of the military. They continue to cause destruction to both public and private property. I’d like to point out that all of this is occurring in the aftermath of the United States’ withdrawal from Afghanistan and the quick spread of extremist ideologies in the region “In a posting on the Russian Embassy’s Facebook page, Antonov stated.
After the events in the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, the Ambassador recounted how US officials did not question the need to restore order. “Today, all democratic forces in the world must assist the Government of Kazakhstan in regaining control of the situation and avoiding further deterioration,” Antonov said. He claims that the disturbance in Kazakhstan is an attempt at a new “colour revolution” aided by thugs, and that it is critical to destroy terrorism and restore order in the nation.
“The efficiency of the CSTO peacekeeping presence has been demonstrated in its first hours, with a focus on restoring peace and constitutional order. All collective force deployment choices in Kazakhstan were made in conformity with CSTO statutory documents and at the request of Kazakhstan’s legitimate President, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev “Antonov brought people’s attention to everything.
