UNREST : Kazakhstan Seeks Help From Russia

Russian-led troops will be deployed to help “stabilise” Kazakhstan amid anti-government demonstrations.
President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev called for support from the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) as nationwide unrest escalated.

The protests were first sparked by rising fuel prices but have broadened to include political grievances

President Tokayev accused foreign-trained “terrorist gangs” of being behind the unrest.

Vowing a tough response to the protests, the president imposed a nationwide state of emergency that includes a curfew and a ban on mass gatherings.

In a televised speech in the early hours of today, he said he had sought help from the CSTO – a military alliance made up of Russia and five other ex-Soviet states – to help stabilise the country.
