Nazarbayev: Signs of ‘color revolutions’ observed in Kazakhstan

Jun 08, 2016 12:00 AM

Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev has said the signs of 'color revolutions' are being observed in Kazakhstan.

"We all know that the so-called color revolutions have various methods and start with the far-fetched rallies, murders, aspirations for seizing power," TASS news agency quoted Nazarbayev as saying in his message published by press June 8. "Those signs have appeared in our country as well."

"Someone, taking advantage of liberality of state policy and our laws, wanted to check the state's durability," he said.

President Nazarbayev added that the Kazakh authorities will take the most stringent measures to suppress extremists and terrorists.

"The criminals, who carried out a series of attacks in the city of Aktobe in western Kazakhstan, received instructions from abroad," he said.

"According to the available information, the terrorist act was organized by followers of radical pseudo-religious currents, who received instructions from abroad," added Nazarbayev.

A group of suspected Islamist militants attacked two gun shops and a national guard base in Kazakhstan's western city of Aktobe June 5. Six people were killed and at least nine injured as a result of the attacks in the city.
