Russia reacted to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s statements regarding Russian military forces in Kazakhstan. “When the United States enters your home, it is difficult to survive, not be robbed and not to be raped,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Following the violence in Kazakhstan,peacekeepers from the Collective Security Treaty Organization (KGAÖ), of which Russia,Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are members, were sent to Kazakhstan at the request of President Kasim Cömert Tokayev.
The U.S.response to U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s announcement that Russia should send troops to Kazakhstan was swift.
“When the United States enters your home, it is difficult to survive, not be robbed and not to be raped.
North American natives, Koreans, Vietnamese, Iraqis, Panamanians, Yugoslavians, Libyans, Syrians and many more unlucky people who find these intruders on their doorstep have a lot to add.”
WHAT DID HE SAY WHEN HE KNEW? “Inmy opinion, the Kazakh authorities and government have the capacity to properly deal with the protests, to do so in a way that respects the rights of protesters while maintaining law and order, so it is not clear why they need any foreign assistance,” US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said at a press conference yesterday.
Blinken said it would be difficult to reduce Russian influence after kazakhstan invited troops to quell unrest in the country.
The Collective Security Treaty Organization, led by Moscow, which responded positively to Kazakhstan’s President Tokayev’s call for help the previous day, sent almost 3,000 troops to Kazakhstan in 24 hours. Russian Defense Ministry IL-76 and AN-124 transport planes delivered Russia’s elite airborne troops to Kazakhstan. Russia’s great importance to the Kazakhstan operation was understood from the appointed commander.
