President of Kazakhstan: In the coming years, our military will be provided with modern weapons and equipment

In modern conditions of growing military-political tension, which has engulfed almost the entire world, more and more countries are paying increased attention to strengthening their defense capabilities. The Republic of Kazakhstan did not remain aloof from this trend. The incumbent head of state, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, recently nominated by the ruling Amanat party as a presidential candidate in an early election, delivered a keynote speech at the republican public headquarters.


One of the main theses of Tokayev's speech was a statement about the need to modernize the army and the power bloc in the coming years. The President promised to provide the Kazakh military with modern weapons and technology, as well as to take measures to develop the military-industrial complex and strengthen territorial defense.

The head of state believes that in the current conditions of unprecedented external challenges, the country's leadership should make every effort to preserve sovereignty and integrity.

This is our duty and sacred obligation to past and future generations. To this end, we will pay special attention to the comprehensive modernization of the army and the entire power bloc. The military will be provided with modern weapons and equipment

Tokayev promised his voters.

The President of the Republic of Kazakhstan believes that it is necessary to increase the prestige of military service and the status of military personnel, in general, strengthen the image of the army, being in the ranks of which should become a "symbol of Kazakhstani patriotism." At the same time, Tokayev stressed, Kazakhstan will continue to maintain a peaceful and constructive foreign policy aimed at cooperation with all partners. But this does not mean that the republic will not defend its national interests and independence at the international level.

Therefore, we will help strengthen the global role of the UN and create a more harmonious and fair system of international relations.

- assured the candidate for the presidency of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Tokayev announced his voluntary resignation from the presidency two years before the expiration of his powers and the holding of early elections in early September. Early elections for the post of head of state will be held in Kazakhstan on November 20. At the same time, the winner will lead the republic for seven years (the current term of Tokayev's presidency would be five years) without the right to run for second place.

Most political scientists believe that Tokayev will win the upcoming elections. This will allow him to increase his political weight and rally the Kazakh society around the new leader, which, in particular, should prevent a repetition of the well-known January events with an attempted coup. The strengthening of power will also be facilitated by the strengthening of the power bloc loyal to the re-elected president.

    Whose production of weapons? Isn't it gifted Russian? Has he stopped fidgeting in different chairs? Maybe shish him all the same, until he decides? Otherwise, everyone wants a lot, only returns are 0. Let the cavalry divisions be recreated with archers, otherwise it looks like he set his sights on the supply of Russian weapons for free. Useful for yourself. And this Kazakh ally is one more.

            Russia has not had and does not have any goals in Kazakhstan and Central Asia for the past 30 years, no one paid attention to what kind of history the youth are taught and what ideals they are brought up on. Now we can say that Russia has lost both Kazakhstan and Central Asia, a Russophobic society hostile to us is growing there, and we must decide what to do next.
            In addition, in these countries, the largest sources of income already belong to the Chinese, Europeans, Americans and Turks, with whom we are now unable to compete.
            The most reasonable step would be to phase out this region. The main thing is to get our Russian-speaking compatriots out of there, which are about 4 million people. For this, special programs are needed for each of the countries. At the same time, it is necessary to carry out migration reforms with the introduction of labor visas and criminal penalties for violations, completely stop funding these countries, then withdraw our bases from Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, removing the external contour of our control of the CIS borders and transfer it to the borders with Kazakhstan, introducing a phased visa regime for these countries, primarily for Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

                None. Our leadership and for our country have no goals, therefore there is no ideology or plan, there is only a desire to eat as much as possible and as sweetly as possible.

      We will never back down from our unwavering friendship. We will support Kazakhstan in protecting its territorial integrity - Xi Jinping.

      Of course of course. It's just that there is already a queue of representatives of the military-industrial complex of different countries in Kazakhstan. China, South Korea, Turkey with great pleasure will provide the Kazakh Armed Forces with everything necessary. But we are no longer there, there is simply nothing to offer for wheeled armored personnel carriers / infantry fighting vehicles and UAVs, and the Turks have already entered the joint production of Anka UAVs and Arma armored personnel carriers / infantry fighting vehicles.

        Kazakhstan has intra-tribal problems. There are Adays in the west, where the oil is. Uzbeks are pushing from the south. Arm yourself from Russia - do not arm yourself will not help. As well as from China. There, most likely, the second Kazakhmaidan will break out.

                  What is beneficial to China will be decided by a few other people, you see. Evil tongues say that there have already been attempts to discuss the topic of historical justice with China in the post-Soviet space, but they have not aroused any interest.

                  It just depends on the preparation of the Kazakh side. The Russian Aerospace Forces, frankly, is a small force. At the same time, an attack on Volgograd, Omsk, and especially on Samara will create a rather bad situation for the Russian Federation as a whole. A good army tends to fight in enemy territory.

                      Kazakhstan has the size of the Ukrainian economy and is considered to have much more competent and consistent leadership. Critics of Kazakhstan say that the second point is an illusion, but in fact there is the same corruption and negative personnel selection as in any dictatorship, so the result can be anything.

                        Well, if the world is dancing one and a half, then something is wrong here. Maybe the devil has crept into the details again? Or are the numbers wrong?

                        It is not the world that is dancing, but several European countries that have pursued a risky policy in some sectors of the economy. For example, if Indonesia and Malaysia ban the export of palm oil to Russia, Russia will be hit harder and longer than Germany is now. Because the Germans eventually found the gas, and palm oil is not available anywhere else in such quantities.

                        Only now, Ukraine, unlike Kazakhstan, has been very heavily militarized since the time of the Union.

                        For 20 years of the farce, there was not a trace of military force left there, and even the last 8 years have not really corrected this. If Kazakhstan, like Ukraine, needs a modern army, neither the Soviet material base, nor especially the Soviet intellectual and organizational base are suitable for this.

                        Will not. Russia has experienced so many cataclysms that it will not even notice. Especially the palm.

                        You don't have to be embarrassed. There, they were armed with might and main for 8 years. The army will not help Kazakhstan. Chela with a different philosophy.

                        So protect from whom? From saiga herds? It seems that you have revised the alternative history. I would understand if we were talking about Turkey. But Kazakhstan is much less prepared than Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan. Duc cities from what to protect?

                    I will say this: the Uzbeks are better prepared than the Kazakhs.
                    Uncle, are you from a parallel reality? The Russian Aerospace Forces is a great force. And for Kazakhstan - irresistible. You again erroneously equate Kazakhstan with Ukraine.
                    What? What hit? You kid Hollywood revised. Will saiga herds flood into Volgograd, Omsk and Samara? Yes, this is really a big blow for vegetarians.

    Most political scientists believe that Tokayev will win the upcoming elections. This will allow him to increase his political weight and rally the Kazakh society around the new leader, which, in particular, should prevent a repetition of the well-known January events with an attempted coup.

    Tokayev is pushing Kazakhstan along the Ukrainian path. Flirting with nationalists, a language issue, just one on one

    Around Nazarbayev at least a kind of cohesive society was created, but will Tokayev succeed? The January events showed the fragility of this unity. Then Russia helped, which in the "cohesive society" they immediately tried to forget.

      It is not obvious that there would be something like a cohesive society around such a multi-vectored person.
      And he annealed in such a way that even his Western friends were shocked by his actions.
      He asked the Americans to place a military base. Placed suspicious biolaboratories.
      He regularly nominated himself for the Nobel Prizes for peace, for economics, like 8 times in total.
      Placed Masonic symbols in the new capital.
      Appeared in major financial scandals.
      He gave a fur coat from a killed rare animal from the Red Book to the Spanish king.
      He sent emissaries around the world, where they paid for laudatory articles about Kazakhstan.
      He shared his dream with Erdogan about a country from Altai to the White Sea.

        I will add that I feel sorry for the fate of a number of monuments dedicated to the greatness and mind of the Central Asian leaders. A few have already been removed and hidden somewhere.
        Statue of Kyrgyz freedom with the face of the wife of the first president. Flying on a core with folded wings, because why sweat, the core flies anyway. With a chimney from a yurt in his hands.
        A gilded statue of a morphinist spinning behind the sun.
        Monument in the pose of a pterodactyl sitting in a dry closet against the background of the wings.
        These things should be preserved for future generations.
        I wonder why these are monuments either to the actual drug addict, or to a close relative of one of the drug addicts.

    A lot depends on the weapon and this is a fact, but there is another side of the medal, this is the desire of the army to defend its country and power, there is one Arab country armed with the latest technology and they don’t consider money for its maintenance, but it’s still impossible to cope with the Hussites, the enti are not good people with a minimum in those terms constantly manage to push a tactical army. At first, we tried to create the same Afghan army from the locals and also armed and taught, but it didn’t work out, then the Americans wanted the same thing and got the same thing. So not everything is decided by modern weapons.

    What are examples of military victories of the Kazakh army?
    Maybe a battle with nine postmen? No.
    Maybe the battle of the "Regular Army of the Kazakh Khanate" with the militia of the "Yellow Elk" tribe. Again no.
    Or maybe a battle with the Przhevalsky expedition. Again no.
    Or victory over the already occupied Iraq as part of the Ukrainian contingent?

    These are the correct words of Mr. Tokayev. But we should not forget that Kazakhstan is such a small analogue of Russia (corruption, theft, nepotism) with its own specifics ... So about the coming years ... As they say "... with good intentions ..." Although the recent initiative of the Ministry of Defense causes respect - conscripts, from among the excellent students of military and political smile will be able to enter universities without exams and on a budget.

      Is this different from America?
      Your generalizations are good, anyone can generalize like that. Dolphin and Elephant for example, and that elephants are useful animals.
      But there are still differences, for example, in Russia, competence in installing poles has not been lost. But within close limits there are places where they are lost.
