The deployment of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) peacekeeping units in Kazakhstan will end on Friday.
According to Report, the organization’s secretary general Stanislav Zas told RIA Novosti.
“I think that tomorrow we will gradually complete the deployment of all our other peacekeeping units,” he said.
Zas noted that the main group of Russian peacekeepers is already in Kazakhstan and has begun to fulfill its tasks.
Earlier, Kazakh President Kasym-Jomart Tokayev requested the deployment of Collective Security Treaty Organization troops. He called the situation in the country “an attack by foreign-trained gangs.” After that, the Collective Security Treaty Organization decided to send peacekeepers to the country.
