Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev has appointed the deputy ministers of defense and interior, according to a message from the press service of the Kazakh president.

"Sauranbayev Nurlan Yermekovich [is appointed] - the deputy minister of defense of the Republic of Kazakhstan; Bozhko Vladimir Karpovich - the deputy minister of internal affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan," the press service said.

Bozhko previously served as the minister of emergency situations, while Sauranbayev was the vice-minister of industry and new technologies.
