Expert: Recent emergency situations in Kazakhstan are not components of single chain

Kazakhstan, Astana, July 14 / Trend D. Mukhtarov /

The recent emergency situations which occurred in Kazakhstan are not components of a single chain and have a different cause and character, Kazakh expert Dosym Satpayev said.

"Let's separate the 'flies from cutlets' as Russian leader Vladimir Putin often likes to repeat," Satpayev told Trend over phone on Friday. "The events occurring in Kazakhstan for the last years can not be mixed. They have different causes, characters, stories. Each incident should be discussed separately."

Several emergency situations have recently occurred in Kazakhstan.

Mass riots hit the Kazakh oil city of Zhanaozen in Mangystau region on Dec.16. According to the Kazakh General Attorney Office, 14 people were killed as a result and over 80 injured. Buildings and cars were burned and the property of individuals and institutions destroyed.

About 15 people - 14 frontier guards and one civilian were killed at the frontier "Arkankergen" in Almaty region in late May. Later the conscript who also served on the outpost confessed to the murder. The reason is an internal conflict. The case is under investigation. On June 11, the conscripts of the Kazakh frontier post "Tersayryk" left the outpost. The operational and search activities were conducted. As a result, they were revealed.

They were transported to the service and said that they were beaten by military serving under the contract. A private home exploded in the Almaty region of Kazakhstan on July 11. The burned bodies of eight people, as well as firearms, ammunition, police uniforms and religious literature were found. A criminal case on the preparation for terrorism was filed. The investigation is underway.

Director of the Kazakh research center "Alternative" Satpayev said that similar events took place in Kazakhstan in the past, but they were less covered by media and therefore did not attract the society's much attention.

"There were different events of different nature within 20 years of independent Kazakhstan's history, which also caused much resonance," he said. "These events include the assassination of politicians, the conflicts within the political elite, illegal arms trade. The recent situation resembles a kebab stick. It has fried pieces of information meat, which are close to each other. This causes a sense of the avalanche. It turns out that Kazakhstan is plunged into a series of bloody events."

In particular, the attempts were made in Kazakhstan earlier to organize terrorist attacks. But it received less media coverage.

"The law enforcement bodies have also detained various members of extremist organizations each year for the last 10 years, by accusing them of preparing the terror acts, but this received less media coverage," he said. "But after several attacks last year, it received more public attention."

"Look at the summary of Kazakh different regions," he said. "Previously, search operations were conducted. The individuals who were accused of possessing weapons and extremist literature were revealed. Law enforcement agencies carried out this work earlier, but did it quietly."

He added that at present, it is important for the Kazakh authorities to conduct competent information policy.

"At present, the authorities are trying to report about certain incidents, not to create the basis for the rumors," he said. "But the incident at the border showed that the authorities have not yet learned how to form an information policy and contacts with the public which hit them and the society."
