    This begs the analogy with the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran. There, too, everything began spontaneously, there was no single organizational center, obvious leaders. The reasons were standard: unemployment, high inflation, persecution of dissidents, the pro-Western policy of the Iranian Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, who at the maximum wave of protests appealed to the United States with a request to send troops. As a result, Washington refused direct intervention, but kept the situation under control. The rebellious people were waiting for the messiah, and Ayatollah Khomeini, who had suddenly returned from exile in Paris, was perfect for his role.

    Chairman of the State Duma's Education and Science Committee, Doctor of Historical Sciences (grandson of the head of the Soviet Foreign Ministry Vyacheslav Molotov) Vyacheslav Nikonov, in his speech on the Big Game program on Channel One, said: “Kazakhstan simply did not exist, North Kazakhstan was not inhabited at all. They (Kazakhs) lived much further south. And, in fact, the territory of Kazakhstan is a great gift from Russia and the Soviet Union. " In Russia, such statements went unnoticed, while in Kazakhstan they had a wide resonance.

      The Kazakhs still lived to the south, but in the 20-30s of the last century, when the Bolsheviks, led by the mustachioed Soso, created this wonderful republic literally out of nothing, the so-called "Kyrgyz" proved that their herds always roamed north of their places of compact residence, therefore , these lands should also belong to Kazakhstan. So they fastened it on in a quick way.

They use weapons against civilians. They cause damage to state and private property. Note that all this happens after the American flight from Afghanistan and the rapid development against this background. extremist ideas and trends in the region, "- said Antonov, whose words are quoted on the page of the Russian Embassy on Facebook.

    CHOTKA! Bravo, Antonov!
    America came - bad! America is gone - too bad! What's better or worse? - there the devil himself will not understand. Depending on the situation, you can turn the "sheepskin coat" with the fur outside and with the fur inside!
    And here the slobbering gypsy, choking, screamed with happiness that the barmaley bent America itself. And now it turns out that Russian friends were bent over there without Russia.
