Peacekeeping Mission In Kazakhstan Coming To An End

Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev announced today that Russian-led CTSO peacekeeping forces will begin withdrawing from #Kazakhstan on Thursday in a process that should take about 10 days. Tokayev told state television that “The main mission of the CSTO peacekeeping forces has been successfully completed” after the country faced widespread civil unrest last week that left at least 182 dead and resulted in nearly 10,000 arrests. The CSTO peacekeeping mission consisted of roughly 2,500 troops from #Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan.
