What connects Russia and Kazakhstan besides the historical past

The recent riots in Kazakhstan and the introduction of a Russian peacekeeping contingent into the country as part of the CSTO mission have sparked numerous discussions about what binds our countries apart from the historical past.

It should be noted that Russia and Kazakhstan have a lot in common. It is worth starting from the border, the length of which is 7598,8 km. It is the longest continuous land border in the world.

More than 30 largest Russian enterprises operate on the territory of Kazakhstan, and the volume of our investments in the economy the neighboring state exceeds $ 10 billion.

70% of Kazakhstan's oil exports to third countries are carried out through the territory of Russia. At the same time, there are uranium deposits on the territory of the neighboring country, which is a strategic resource for the Russian Federation.

Finally, we should not forget about Russia's lease of the Baikonur cosmodrome, from which most of our missile launches are carried out today. Moreover, this site will be used by our country even after the completion of the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome.

Thus, taking into account all of the above, we can conclude that Russia, like no one else, is interested in stability in Kazakhstan and friendly relations with the neighboring state.

    I think very few people remember this, but in 1937 a new nationality appeared - Kazakh. RF invented it. And then ... Now they have 4000 years of history. Already, from the age of 37

      Do you hint at the short-sighted policy of Stalin and the CPSU (b)?

      In those years, quite a lot of different nationalities appeared, such as the same Ukrainians or Belarusians, so the appearance of Kazakhs did not surprise anyone.

      And the Russian Federation has nothing to do with it. Then there was such a state - the USSR. And at its head was a certain I.V. Dzhugashvili, better known as Stalin. All questions to him.

      And not only Kazakhs "have such an ancient history."
      Protoukry dug up the Black Sea.
      And the Moldovans are the descendants of the Romans. No more and no less.

    Yes, yes, and therefore Russia forgives its smaller brothers various pranks such as squeezing Russians out of most of the territory of Kazakhstan.

    Also, Kazakhs, who quite recently did not have a written language at all, imagined that it would be better for them to switch to a certain alphabet based on the Latin alphabet, the Cyrillic alphabet ceased to suit them for unknown reasons.

    And it seems to me that the presence of Russia in Kazakhstan is much more modest than the Chinese one.
