Unrest in Kazakhstan prepared in advance, had foreign backing: CIS Executive Committee

The mass unrest in Kazakhstan was prepared in advance in order to destabilize the situation in the country, and its organizers had foreign backing, according to Executive Commissioner of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) Sergei Lebedev, according to Sputnik international.

"It is obvious today that the destructive elements, the bandits were preparing for mass rallies in advance to destabilize the country and had foreign support," Lebedev said. "These provocateurs, guides, and sponsors of the so-called "colour revolutions" and riots in the CIS these days declare with feigned pride their leading role in criminal acts in the cities of Kazakhstan".

 Kazakhstan has been rattled by mass protests for several days. After a request from President Tokayev, the CSTO decided to send its peacekeeping forces to Kazakhstan, with the contingents primarily tasked with guarding essential military and government infrastructure.
