    🤔 mmh, this begs the question… who was the head of the security council just the moment before Nazarbayev resigned? 🤔

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      good question

  • Saddam Hussein

    Whats the take on this? Will this help Nato or the Russian alliance?

    • Jens Holm

      They just show stability.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The Jews and Americunts are trying to take over the Stans, but they have large Russian populations and speak Russian as they have a history with Russia, Turkey and Iran. The Americunt and Zionist agenda is to turn them into NATO bases as they are doing in Tajikistan with CIA airlifting terrorists from Syria and Iraq. Remember that these Stans have a lot of OIL and natural resources which the Bilderberg Jews want to control. These Stans are also a frontline in Americunt strategic plans for the destabilization of Russia and China. However, Russia due to historical ties has far more influence in Kazakhstan in the military and security services. Russia has rocket launch and space facilities there too and most people speak Russian.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    In all fairness, all these CIS banana republics or Stans have a long history of integration with Russia and should be brought back into the Russian Federation or the Americunts and Zionist scum will infect them.
