At the beginning of the year, protests began in Kazakhstan, provoked by a twofold increase in the cost of liquefied gas, which is the main fuel for light vehicles. A few days later, Tokayev removed Nazarbayev from the post of head of the republic’s Security Council. Later, the ex-president's press secretary said that Nazarbayev himself decided to leave the post, as he realized that “ riots and terror demanded a prompt, tough and uncompromising response from the country's leadership.
