“Whoever does not surrender will be destroyed,” the President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev, promised, stating the impossibility of negotiations with criminals and murderers
The President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev ordered the security forces without warnings to open fire on “ criminals. ''
“ I gave the order to law enforcement agencies and the army to open fire to kill without warning. Calls are being made abroad to hold talks for a peaceful solution to the problem. What nonsense! What negotiations can be with criminals, with murderers '', & mdash; Tokayev said in his address on the air of Kazakhstani TV channels.
The President of Kazakhstan said that police and military personnel had to face “ armed and trained bandits '', among whom were not only local residents, but also foreigners.
“ They need to be destroyed, and this will be done in the near future … The militants did not lay down their arms, they continue to commit crimes or prepare for them. The fight against them must be completed. Whoever does not surrender will be destroyed '', & mdash; Tokayev promised, noting that the “ forces of law and order '' ready to complete the task, despite the lack of special forces, special means and equipment. The President also criticized the special services, which “ slept through, '' according to him, the preparation of terrorist attacks and the organization of sleeping cells of militants.
“ 20 thousand bandits attacked Almaty alone. Their actions showed the presence of a clear plan of attacks on military, administrative and social facilities in almost all areas, well-coordinated coordination of actions, high combat readiness and bestial cruelty, '' & mdash; Tokayev told.
According to him, the CSTO peacekeepers who have arrived in the country, who will perform the functions of “ cover and support '', will help the authorities of Kazakhstan to cope with the crisis. Tokayev thanked the leaders of the CSTO member states for the promptness in providing assistance through the CSTO, especially highlighting Russian President Vladimir Putin, who “ comradely reacted warmly '' to a request for help.
Tokayev specifically pointed to the “ aiding and instigating role '', which, according to him, is played by the “ so-called free media and foreign figures far from fundamental interests ''; people of Kazakhstan.
“ It can be said without exaggeration that all these irresponsible demagogues became accomplices in unleashing the tragedy in Kazakhstan, '' & mdash; the president said, noting that not only militants were acting against the country's authorities, but also “ specialists trained in ideological sabotage '', skillfully using disinformation, fakes and capable of manipulating people's moods.
“ It looks like the fact that a single command post was engaged in their preparation and management '', & mdash; Tokayev noted.
At the same time, the president said that he had made a decision to restore Internet access, although so far only “ in certain regions '' and at certain time intervals. In addition, he said that in the future, the state of emergency will be gradually lifted in the regions.
Tokayev also expressed confidence that the black streak in the history of Kazakhstan will soon be passed.
