Kazakh MPs calls for prohibition of Russian politicians’ entry into country

Astana, Kazakhstan, Feb.26

By Daniyar Mukhtarov - Trend:

The Kazakh MPs called on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country to add Russian politicians Vladimir Zhirinovsky and Eduard Limonov to the list of persons, whose entering into the territory of Kazakhstan is prohibited.

One of the important achievement of our government is the unity of its multinational and multireligious people, and the statements of Mr. Limonov and Mr. Zhirinovsky may be used by ill-wishers. We think that the offensive statements made Zhirinovsky should be publicly disavowed by the official representatives of the Russian Federation, MP Nikolay Logutov said while reading the collective request to the Kazakh FM Yerlan Idrisov at the Majilis (lower chamber of parliament) on Feb. 26.

The question is about the controversial statements made by the member of the Russian State Duma on Defense and the Leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
On Feb. 23, Zhirinovsky spoke at a rally in honor of the Day of Defender of the Fatherland, where he called for depriving the Central Asian states of independence.

"No republics in Central Asia," Zhirinovsky said, adding that instead of the Central Asian republics there should be a "Central Asian Federal district" with the capital city called Verny (former name of Almaty) The name 'Almaty' is an invention by Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan".

"When the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country expressed concern about statements of the Russian politician Limonov affecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Kazakhstan, it was emphasized that Limonov has no official status and can not speak on behalf of the Russian Federation. However, in this case, similar comments were received from a senior official. We can not ignore that, inter alia, Zhirinovsky is the leader of the parliamentary party in the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation and a member of the State Council of Russia , that, in our opinion, should impose on him the most serious responsibility for public statements ," Logutov said.

According to deputies, Zhirinovsky's went to the limit by making similiar offensive statement publicly on behalf of the party, encroaching on the sovereignty and independence of Kazakhstan,
according to the MPs.

"Sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Kazakhstan, paid at the highest price through a century of labor and the blood of our ancestors are immutable and inviolable, and any attempt to assault them must meet a resolute rebuff," the MPs request said.

It is also said in the statement that due to the efforts of our two presidents, the relations between Kazakhstan and Russia have become a shining example of alliance and strategic partnership.

"We are partners in the Customs Union and cooperate closely in the creation of the Eurasian Economic Union. We assume that Zhirinovsky`s public statements cast shadow on the partnership between our countries and historically established brotherhood between our peoples," Logutov said.
