Lukashenko in a telephone conversation clarified Nazarbayev's position on the situation in Kazakhstan

Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko and the first Kazakh president, ex-head of the Security Council Nursultan Nazarbayev discussed the situation in Kazakhstan during a telephone conversation. This was announced on January 7 by the press service of the head of the Republic of Belarus.

During the conversation, the interlocutors discussed in detail the state of affairs in Kazakhstan

- says the short communique.

No other details were given, and Lukashenka’s press service also didn’t give it. At the same time, it is known that before that Nazarbayev did not show official activity at the foreign policy level within the framework of the CIS (Kazakhstan is the chairing country since January 1, 2022) after the start of mass protests in this Central Asian state.

It should be noted that the last time Nazarbayev's foreign policy activity, as the head of the Security Council of Kazakhstan, was noticed on December 28, 2021, when he met with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in St. economic union. The full text of the conversation is published on the Kremlin website.

Note that it will be problematic for Nazarbayev to remain in Kazakhstan, where "peaceful protesters" are demolishing his monuments, and the current authorities remove members of his family from their positions. Therefore, behind the meager lines of the press service, there may be a proposal of the Belarusian side or the desire of Nazarbayev himself to receive political asylum in Belarus. He will not be bored, because since 2010 ex-President of Kyrgyzstan Kurmanbek Bakiev and his closest circle have been permanently residing there.

It is dangerous for Nazarbayev to move to the West, because there they demand from the Kazakh leadership to stop pressure on the "peaceful protesters" who have already beheaded two law enforcement officers. It is also pointless for Nazarbayev to go to Turkey, despite the flirtations and speculations about the “great Turkic world”. He was born and raised in an atheistic Soviet society and, after the collapse of the USSR, he was building a nation-state. Therefore, it will be difficult for 81-year-old Nazarbayev to acclimatize there.

    Lukashenka's call is understandable. How does he feel after being kicked in the ass. Apparently Lukashenka also has an expectation of this. What else can you find out from the one who has already been expelled. Our climate is probably not suitable for him, but his friends in London there are much milder, and he did a lot for them. He even donated good assets to the royal family for almost nothing. But lLkashenko has problems with such a way out ...

    Who is interested in his position now? Or are there no more people in Kazakhstan whose position would be interesting?

    Media reports that Nazarbayev is in Nur-Sultan (Astana) and calls on all citizens of Kazakhstan to rally around President Tokayev.

    Yes, they wrote earlier that in Switzerland, now "it will be problematic to stay in Kazakhstan"
    But he is the Chairman of the Security Council, he has to put pressure on the pogrom-makers ...

        Yes. Maybe he pressed badly (fulfilled the duty), maybe the clan struggle. We'll see.

          He has health problems. They say cancer. He can no longer work at full strength.
          And so, Putin accepted him with all respect. It's just that his time has passed.
