Militants in Kazakhstan seized portable anti-aircraft systems

During the riots in Kazakhstan, radicals in Almaty seized six Igla portable anti-aircraft complexes from the arsenal of the country's National Security Committee. The incident was reported by the VChK-OGPU telegram channel.

At the moment, the location of the combat systems is not known, the search for them continues.

On Wednesday, January 5, about a hundred attackers, armed with stones and metal rods, initiated an assault on the building of the Committee. In addition to MANPADS, body armor, cartridges and other types of weapons fell into the hands of the attackers.

The next day, the security forces carried out an operation against the outrageous protesters. The militants were rounded up in the center of Almaty and surrounded by armored personnel carriers. Shortly thereafter, a firefight began, and after a while the military left the square, in which only a small group of protesters remained.

The Kazakh authorities are taking steps to resolve the situation. So, on Friday, January 7, a meeting of the counter-terrorism headquarters was held in Nur-Sultan, during which the country's President Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev announced the start of the anti-terror operation. Earlier, the head of state called on the CSTO countries to provide assistance to Kazakhstan in establishing constitutional order in the country.

    Well, how can you not swear? Just oh ... you can. Why in the National Security Committee in the center of the city of MANPADS? Whom were they going to shoot down? So everyone in the country slept, and the weapons were also taken out of control. All the bastards in jail.

    The point is not that they grabbed it, but that the employees, instead of resisting until the last bullet, turned out to be “lace panties,” and did everything without a fight, there is footage of this shame.

      The boys from the frontier service academy repulsed the attack.
      Sapper blades and fire extinguishers.

      But the adult uncles surrendered the central council of the NB Committee without any resistance at all.
      Together with the entire arsenal ..

        Trotsky, presenting the commander of the Latvian riflemen Vatsetis with an award of 10 thousand rubles. (recall that the Latvians were mercenaries), in a half-joking manner, he said a strange phrase that he acted perfectly as a soldier, but by his diligence he thwarted some important political combination.

          The country's President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev in his last speech quite clearly mentioned the debriefing in the law enforcement agencies after the latest events.

          There will be purges of the Nazarbayevskys in favor of the Tokayevskys.
          Tomorrow is possible in the opposite direction.
          East is not such a delicate matter if you have reliable information.

          Does anyone else remember how and at whose enterprises the boom began?

            I haven't looked at what started yet, but judging by how quickly Tokayev cleans up the Nazarbayevskys, this is at least an important factor in the current situation, if not the root cause. It all started as if with the price of fuel, but immediately (even according to our scanty information) the slogan "go away," slipped through (although he is formally not very busy there :) and away we go - Nazarbayev was kicked out of his post, relatives of the Committee. Such things are not done so simply, especially in conditions of a severe crisis. Either it was a significant demand from the protesters, or it was Tokayev's burning desire. And it is possible that both are not casual :)
