The local opponents of Nazarbayev and Putin have long had "Maidan dreams" and dream of repeating it on peaceful Kazakhstani land. At the same time, they with sheep's delight reject even the possibility of a repetition of the bloodbath, arranged by Poroshenko and the Bandera-Nazis in the Donbas.
Well, a year ago, the Ukrainians, who destroyed production, destroyed thousands of citizens, did not expect such consequences of their revolutionary games. But now no one even in the Kremlin or the White House can predict the near future of Ukraine. But some (fortunately, an insignificant) part of Kazakhstanis wants a repetition of the Maidan in Almaty or Astana, and after and throughout the steppe republic.
The secret to repeating Maidan is as simple as a recipe for beshbarmak. The United States, losing the status of the “only global superpower”, is striving to create hotbeds of tension of any degree, the main thing is closer to the borders of Russia. In this regard, Kazakhstan, which has an enormous length of borders with the Russian Federation, a powerful resource base and an advantageous geopolitical position, has been a subject of special attention for Washington since 1991. Americans work here all the time, and their failures are most likely due to the insidious Eastern wisdom and political flair of local politicians who can learn from the mistakes of others.
And yet the maidan in Kazakhstan is prepared. And cooked according to the Ukrainian recipe. For the first time in Central Asia, “maydan Ukrainians” appeared during the first revolution in Kyrgyzstan. Instructors from the Ukrainian "Pores" trained young people, teaching them non-violent overthrow of power and invoking the experience of "the victorious orange". Now Ukrainians are teaching the Kazakhstani rebellion, and “non-violence” is no longer relevant.
It is well known that representatives of the Kazakh opposition, both in Kazakhstan and at European bases, warmly welcomed euromaidan, “condemned the Russian aggression” and often visited Kiev to exchange experience. However, if a year ago, these contacts were sporadic, then now Ukraine, or rather those who manage it from across the ocean, began preparing the Kazakh Maidan seriously.
First of all, it is noticeable by the unexpected, but evident in the eyes, activization of various Ukrainian national-cultural societies of Kazakhstan. The most zealous supporter of the coup in Kazakhstan is Denis Stadnichuk, the former director of the Ukrainian Cultural Center “Prosvita Zhetisu” in Almaty, who is known for his anti-Russian antics and cheeky statements about the leadership of the republic.
Typical avatar screensaver
It was he who organized the appeal of the Ukrainian public in Kazakhstan to President Nazarbayev, which was widely spread by the Kiev media, to condemn the “invasion of Russian troops into the territory of Ukraine”. After the maydanian “Prosvite” was condemned, moderating his revolutionism, he accused the Assembly of the People of Kazakhstan of political pressure on him because of his views. At present, according to available information, Stadnichuk was involved in recruiting fighters-mercenaries in Kazakhstan who are ready to fight on the side of Poroshenko’s punitive divisions. Among the handed out advances - not only cash, but also Ukrainian citizenship, and the possibility of subsequent departure to Europe.
In Pavlodar, such activities, punishable in accordance with the Criminal Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan, are carried out by the head of the Pavlodar Association of Ukrainian Culture named after him. T.G. Shevchenko, a member of the World Congress of Ukrainians, Mikhail Parips.
Now cadets, future “fighters of the Kazakhstan revolution”, are being transferred to Ukraine in groups for training. Training is supervised by the Ukrainian special services controlled by the Americans. And the “teachers” are the militants of the Right Sector and Self-Defense of Maidan, who are storing themselves from the ATO. At meetings with representatives of the Kazakh opposition, Andrei Paruby was also noticed.
More than once in Ukraine in the company of “field commanders” flashed and notable russophobes from Kazakhstan Aydar Bekbosyn and Serikzhan Mambetalin. In general, everything is ready for the export of the Ukrainian revolution.
However, the main force in the preparation of the coup is not mercenary fighters. The fact is that Kazakhstan’s society is rather strongly integrated into the Russian world, it can serve as an example of inter-ethnic solidarity and centenary traditions of Kazakh-Slavic cohabitation. The unity of society is well felt here in relation to the most important events of our common storiesFor example, the Victory Day. Therefore, the liberal-nationalist propaganda, which is supported by some media, political parties and public organizations of Kazakhstan, has become the main element in preparing public opinion for Maidan.
The most common technique is the imposition of “new Ukrainian values” on society, popularization of the leaders of the Kiev regime and their practice. So, in the republic the project "Real Ukraine" is widely promoted, which is represented by the notorious in Ukraine Olesya Yakhno; its texts are marked under the heading "Especially for Kazakhstan". The falsity of paid Ukrainian authors is well known. An example is an interview in ADAM magazine with the mayor of Lvov, Andrey Sadov, who tells Kazakhstanis about “the Russian army and tankswho are fighting against Ukrainians and killing my people ”. The most effective mayor of Ukraine, of course, does not tell the reader of Kazakhstan about how the Ukrainian artillery is tearing the children of Horlivka and Donetsk to shreds.
The Lviv mayor is also silent about the Nazi lawlessness in Kharkov and Odessa, about the atmosphere of general denunciations prevailing in Ukraine, about torture, about the robberies committed by the Ukrainian military, and they don’t ask him about it, because the ADAM magazine published in Russian in Kazakhstan This is the mouthpiece of the revolutionary Ukrainian. “Russian scare tactics in Ukraine”, “What, besides neo-Nazism, does Russia carry us?”, “Ukrainian experience for Kazakhstan” - these are the names of some articles from the collection of journal issues in just one month.
The number of cases of copying Ukrainian information and political receptions in Kazakhstan exceeds the limit. Some of the public activists and journalists (let's name them: Miras Nurmukhambetov, Gulzhan Yergaliyeva, Ali Utep, Rizada Zhakypbek, Bayan Usen, Zhanna Bota, Yermek Narymbaev, Denis Krivosheev, Maxim Bornabayev and others) are building their anti-state strategy on fabrication patterns, for example, in the same way, as for fabrication, for fabrication, for fabrication, for Maxim Bornabaev, and others. , Vilnius and Warsaw. One thing is to give them their due: they work tirelessly. Money for this work received. No wonder Michael Klichevski, the deputy head of the US diplomatic mission in Kazakhstan, travels around the republic without end.
Attempts to discredit the Eurasian Economic Union continue while popularizing “Euro-Atlantic values”. Any flaws in the construction of the EAEU are swelling to hypertrophic proportions, and “expert opinions” on the “perniciousness of the single currency” are popularized. In addition to nationalists and pseudoliberals, there are also “advanced democratic watchings” like the Kazakh-German University, whose professor Rustam Burnashev fiercely defends “the multi-vector nature of Kazakhstan as a geopolitical panacea.” The multivector Kuchma and Kuchmism are again taken as a role model ...
Even the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome by Kazakhstan’s oppositionists is presented as “Putin’s attempt to destroy Baikonur”.
Observer Maxim Borandai does not get tired to call on the people of Kazakhstan to join the European Union and even NATO. Not only calls, but also finds arguments to justify his popularizing nonsense.
As in Ukraine, in Kazakhstan this year, the object of attacks was Victory Day and its attributes. Local maydanutye accused Russia of "privatization" of the Victory, mashing the Kazakh heroes, protested against the spread of the St. George ribbon. So far, fortunately, the society responds adequately to such “Ukrainisms”. By the way, in all regional centers of Kazakhstan they collect humanitarian aid for Donbass, and the number of cars with St. George ribbons is no less than in Moscow ...
And, of course, another fad of Kazakhstani revolutionaries was “Russian separatism” and “imperialist ambitions of Russia towards Northern Kazakhstan”. The analogies with the Crimea and the Donbas are again being used, but the real reason for the Russian uprising in Ukraine, which was the direct aggression of ukrofashism and Bandera, is all silent. But so far in Kazakhstan there is neither the “Right Sector”, nor the “Tryzuba”, nor the “Patriot of Ukraine”. Until? I specify, because the Kazakh nationalists and their liberal counterparts are already talking about the need to create such organizations ...
So that? To turn Kazakhstan into a festering and crumbling Ukraine or remain a sovereign state?
A single American training manual on destabilization of the post-Soviet countries is also used in Kazakhstan. The basis of this training manual consists of methods of falsifying the historical past, filling history textbooks with new heroes, new meanings, new conclusions.
The “big wash” of the past with huge, sometimes ridiculous soap bubbles of national self-transcendence (Kazakhs are direct descendants of Chingizids; Kazakhs are the discoverers of pilaf; Kazakhs are the creators of first-class medieval culture of Central Asia, etc.) began in the 90 of the last century, but its echoes are heard today.
At the same time, however, the history of Kazakhstan was not turned into a rag by politicians who rubbed the past, as they do in Ukraine or in the Baltic States. However, the general political bias of the historians of Kazakhstan corresponds to the framework of national isolation established by Washington for the former Soviet republics, and its isolation from the large imperial space. This implies the search for supposedly forgotten heroes and pages of the past (preferably loaded with anti-Russian or anti-Soviet sense), the formation of their attractive appearance through the introduction of secondary and high school programs, the erection of monuments, the renaming of streets.
All the consequences of this policy will affect after some time, but for now the majority of people in Kazakhstan hardly identify hundreds of new names and titles. For example, in Astana and Almaty, old street names are widely used. Administrative decisions of the authorities often provoke a protest, although without result. An example is the liquidation of the monument to Maxim Gorky in one of the favorite rest areas of Almaty residents - the Park of Culture and Rest, which once bore the name of a Russian Soviet writer. People did not interfere to speak, let off steam, and then quietly dismantled the monument with promises to find another place to install it. East is a delicate matter…
Most of the Kazakhs respectfully speak of the Russian Empire, which saved them from complete annihilation by the Dzungars and contributed to the development of the nation, and of course, the Soviet Union remembers the good, nostalgia for which is noticeable in the middle and older generation today. And this is understandable: with the beginning of the development of virgin lands, the republic received a powerful impetus to development in all directions. Probably because the era of Dinmukhamed Akhmetovich Kunaev (first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Kazakhstan in 1960-1962 and 1964-1986), which is lovingly called “our Dimash”, is considered to be a golden age ...
But everything that has happened in the history of a dramatic people or what historians argue about is transformed today by the efforts of nationalists and liberals into objects of information attacks. Favorite topics of this public are the question of voluntariness of joining to Russia the Younger Zhuz in 1731, the anti-colonial uprisings of Zholaman Tlenchiev, Makhambet Utemisov, Istaya Taimanov, Sarym Datov, the proclamation of independence of Kazakhstan in 1917 year, 1933 famine, repressions and December events 1986 hunger, reprisals and December events, the events of Kazakhstan in XNUMX year, XNUMX hunger, repressions and December events, XNUMX hunger, repressions and December events, XNUMX hunger for Kazakhstan, XNUMX hunger, repressions and December events, the proclamation of independence of Kazakhstan in XNUMX year, XNUMX hunger, reprisals and December events XNUMX Kazakhstan.
Khan of the Younger Zhuz Abulhair and his letter to Empress Anna Ioanovna
For the sake of justice, it must be said that a number of undoubtedly prominent personalities of Kazakh history (Zhangir, Bogenbai Batyr, Tauke Khan, and others) were in the past pushed, worn out, and this is widely speculated today.
As a matter of fact, the whole pre-revolutionary history of Russia, falling into the hands of nationalists and liberals, turns into the history of the colonial seizures of the predatory Russian empire. That is why the role of Russian researchers and the military in describing this region, in its economic and cultural development is often ignored, although Kazakh researchers usually use letters and documents of Russian pioneers - I. Unkovsky, V. Veliyaminova - to prove the historical significance of this or that Khan or Batyr Zernov, V. Barthold and especially Aleksei Levshin, who is called "Herodot of the Kazakh people."
And yet, on the whole, the extremes of falsification of the pre-revolutionary past of Russia, when history is turned into a caricature, from which the “ancient homeland of humanity Old-Time Ukraine” is suffering today, are not present in Kazakhstan. At least, these extremes are somehow moderated.
Another thing is the Soviet history, where with an easy presentation and with the active support of the Institute of National Remembrance of Ukraine in Kazakhstan, they are trying to exaggerate the tragedy of the 30 famine and the political repressions of those years. However, here too, the people who survived a lot do not fall into “Ukrainian hysteria”, although it is known that, as a percentage, the residents of the Kazakh Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (the status of a union republic was 5 December 1936 of the year) suffered most in 1932-33.
The theme of the Great Patriotic War for the people of Kazakhstan is a special topic. Republic has something to be proud of. 499 Kazakhs, among them 99 Kazakhs, were awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union. Twice this title was awarded to the ground attack pilots T. Ya. Begeldinov, L. I. Beda, I. P. Pavlov, and fighter pilot S. D. Lugansky. Two girls, the Kazakhs M. Mametov and A. Moldagulov, were awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union. 110 of Kazakhstan were awarded the Order of Glory of three degrees. General Baurdzhan Momysh-uly, pilot Hiuaz Dospanov, who made 300 combat missions, sniper of the Sevastopol marines Philip Rubakho, hero of the Kursk Bulge of Kashagan Jamangaraev and many others, are remembered and honored here.
Almaty 9 May 2015 of the year
A subject of special pride is the feat of the Panfilov Division, which was formed in Almaty. The city park 28 of Panfilov’s guardsmen for Almaty residents is a cult memorial park, a shrine.
Almaty 9 May. Park and memorial 28 Panfilov
Alas, due to the efforts of other representatives of the Russian historical science, the Panfilov’s feat at the junction Dubosekovo 16 in November 1941 of the year is subject to revision and is being vulgarized. 11 June at the World Congress of the Russian Press in Moscow, the Director of the State Archives of Russia Sergey Mironenko once again doused the soldiers with mud. Earlier, 7 July 2011, an interview with Mironenko appeared in the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda under the heading “Secrets of the State Archive”, in which he called the feat of 28 Panfilov heroes a myth, claiming that “there were no heroically fallen Panfilov heroes” .. .
The Moscow official’s speech provoked a fierce protest from Almaty residents, and on June 12 of this year a group of citizens led by Mansur Moldakulov held a rally in honor of “our grandfathers-Panfilovites” at the Glory Memorial. Moldakulov said: “This division was formed here in Kazakhstan and fraternal Kyrgyzstan! And I, as a person whose grandfather died in this hell of War, populist statements of this kind are very much hurt and insulted! Personally ... Even if this person is three times the director of the Archive ... Therefore, today we, ordinary Almaty residents, laid flowers at the monument to our Panfilov heroes in our beloved Park! They, too, were leaving the front from Almaty, and their feat will always be in our hearts! We smiled! They smiled in spite of such pseudo-professors- "grave-diggers" suffering from flatulence. OUR POWER IN UNITY! “UATYMYZ BIRLIKTE!”
Almaty Monument to Alia Moldagulova and Manshuk Mametova
The Great Patriotic War and the Great Victory are vigorously defamed (especially in the jubilee 2015 year) and the “Sorosyaty”, these fed by Western grants “seekers of democracy and objectivity”. The ADAM magazine (#10 2015), already published in Kazakhstan by the national-liberal horn, publishes an article by Maxim Boranbayev “How Putin appropriated the Great Victory”. The celebration of Victory is “another springboard in the political baiga of the President of Russia (Baiga is a popular type of horse racing with Turkic peoples. - A.U.),” Boranbayev is indignant. Examples of the "privatization" of Putin, Russia and the Russians of the feat of all Soviet people have nowhere to take, but he is trying to assure his Kazakhstani readers that the Moscow parade has turned into a "diplomatic and political breakthrough of the Kremlin." Like, the leaders of the leading countries of the world did not come to Moscow. At the same time, the paid-in scribbler doesn’t notice among the guests of Putin the leaders of China and India, and Nazarbayev represented not the smallest state in the world on Red Square in Moscow. But the theses on the "annexation" of the Crimea in the Boranbayev article on Victory are more than enough ...
The Kazakh packers are armed with a vivid example of the use of interviews of veterans, where with crafty questions they push the old man to statements that, after dressing in the "necessary" wording, are cunning schlokpery. Here comes the interview with 90-year-old war hero, Air Force Sergeant Bibinur Tynysbekova with the title “Our authorities are trading Victory.”
The heroes of the Great Patriotic War tirelessly try to oppose “national heroes” from the opposite side of the front, like one of the creators of the Nazi Turkestan Legion, Mustafa Shokay, whose name has already been given the streets about which the films were shot, and books written. Fortunately, in Kazakhstan such examples are negligible compared to the Baltic states, Ukraine, Moldova and even Georgia.
However, those who hate the common feat of all the peoples of the Soviet Union are ready to dig the ground in search of "informational reasons." Almost every year, the Kazakh side throws up the victory of the Victory Banner on the Reichstag, which, according to the local version, was set by the commander of the reconnaissance platoon of the 30 rifle regiment of the 1945 rifle division Lieutenant Rakhimzhan Koshkarbayev and private Gregory Bulatt, Grigory Bulat, and the private ones. the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, but, unfortunately, did not receive this award.
Alas, this year Kazakhstan joined the states in which the campaign against the St. George ribbon was launched. One of the most ardent initiators of this campaign, Ali Utep, said: “The ribbon of St. George is imperial symbolism, a scandalous bust, spitting in the face of our community. The symbol of colonial Russia suddenly became a symbol of the Great Patriotic War, the treacherous Soviet Union, from which only the Holodomor and the Gulag were remembered. ”
Creatures with such a flawed memory suggested wearing ribbons with the colors of national flags on the holiday, and in some local administrations in Kazakhstan an order was issued about the inadmissibility of using the St. George ribbon. With particular pleasure, opponents of the St. George Ribbon noted that Nursultan Nazarbayev did not attach it at a parade in Moscow.
And yet the willows and boranbayevs in Kazakhstan are in a clear minority. Russians should know that thousands of cars in the cities of Kazakhstan are decorated with Victory ribbons, that thousands and multinational actions of the Immortal Regiment are taking place here, that even in the torrential 9 of May few people left the holiday in the 28 Almaty park of the Panfilov heroes. The memory of the past is still stronger than the "dissenting opinion" of the Lilliputians evil in their impotence ...
Not so long ago, the world media circled news that Poroshenko invited former British Prime Minister Anthony Charles Linton Blair to join the Consultative International Reform Council in Ukraine.
Blair, of course, did not refuse, and even held talks with the pastor-president, at which the importance of reforms in Ukraine and the “Russian aggression” were discussed. On the whole, it turned out to be amusing, since Tony Blair has been at the ration of Kazakhstan since 2011, being the official adviser to Nursultan Nazarbayev. At the same time, according to the official version of The Daily Telegraph, the former prime minister will receive about 8 million pounds sterling for his work in Kazakhstan. But Poroshenko can pay only with its chocolates ...
However, we are not about Poroshenko. We are about those who, in addition to Blair, are working today with Nursultan Nazarbayev on the role of consilieri. (Consileri [ital. Consigliere] - family counselor, a person whom the don can trust and whose advice he hears. He serves as an intermediary in resolving controversial issues, acts as an intermediary between don and bribed political, trade union or judicial figures or acts as a family representative at meetings with other families. Consilers, as a rule, have a legitimate business, for example, law practice or work as a stockbroker).
The history of the use of foreign brains in Kazakhstan is, of course, connected with the Americans. And for Kazakhstan, this story had a sad end.
In 1992, in the closest entourage of Nursultan Abishevich, a certain James Giffen appeared, an adviser with a focus on oil production. As it turned out later, Giffen had a commission and fee agreement with the New York bank Mercator Corp. All oil companies that were trying to work in Kazakhstan faced Giffen, and the case ended with a 20 billion deal with Chevron, which resulted in the American company receiving half of the shares of the giant Tengiz field in western Kazakhstan.
In 2003, when Giffen was arrested in the United States, the so-called "Kazakhgate" struck. The press leaked information, compromising Nazarbayev. The image of the Kazakh president was seriously injured then.
And what about Giffen? And he, as the Kazakh oppositionist Serikbolsyn Abdildin assures, was a CIA agent, and a delicate case for Washington that had lasted for many years was hushed up, but Giffen was found guilty of petty tax evasion. Actually justified.
Something similar happened to a lower-ranking American adviser - Brian Williams III, the former manager of the oil company Mobil.
After that, Nazarbayev began recruiting Englishmen, who from the 19th century have the richest experience of the “Big Game” in this part of the world. Apparently, the “Big Game” continues today.
So, in the 2011 year, former British Prime Minister went to serve Nazarbayev. A part of Kazakhstan experts highly appreciated this step, a part - with bewilderment, because Tony Blair is a man, certainly an extraordinary one, but he cannot boast with special economic results. The official version of his appearance as an adviser to Nazarbayev was as follows: “This will help increase the investment attractiveness of the republic ... since in the era of globalization, attracting experienced foreign consultants is a generally accepted world practice.”
Aidos Sarym, who in Kazakhstan is called the “court nationalist,” insisted that advice from Blair would increase Western interest in Kazakhstan. However, in all likelihood, it was the other way around: Blair’s invitation was a testament to Nazarbayev’s interest in the West, giving Kazakhstan a significant role in its geopolitical games.
European and American media for the most part describe Kazakhstan as an almost totalitarian state where they violate an infinite number of rights and freedoms. How such descriptions end is well known.
Nazarbayev understands this and is trying to play his game, although it should not be forgotten that among the Blair’s clients was the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi who was brutally murdered with the help of Great Britain, France and the United States. The name of the program Blair directs in Kazakhstan, “Path to Europe”, is also alarming. What is this path, we see today in Ukraine.
And, of course, they cannot but be disturbed by the words of former adviser to the President of Kazakhstan, Yermukhamet Yertysbayev (now the Ambassador of Kazakhstan to Georgia), who once noted that "Blair will advise Kazakhstan not only on economic, but also on political issues." As Yertysbayev hinted, it could even be a question of the “political modernization” of Kazakhstan.
A curious configuration emerged: Nazarbayev invites British advisors, while in Britain itself is the center of the Kazakh opposition, represented primarily by Mukhtar Ablyazov (arrested in France in 2013 year).
At the same time, Tony Blair, as reported by the Kazakh media, is going to publish the book "Kazakhstan trend: from totalitarianism to a democratic and legal state." Also interesting.
Blair himself is only the tip of a British iceberg floating in Kazakhstan. The list of other persons will make it clear how thoroughly the British have settled here.
So first of all this is Sir Richard Harry Evans - a former official in the service of Her Majesty and a businessman. Evans has a good experience in Asia. In Kazakhstan, he is from 1992 of the year and, as is believed here, is the real founder of Kazakhstan's airline Air Astana. Evans has long represented in the republic the interests of BAE Systems plc, whose executive director he was in 1998-2004. BAE Systems plc is a British defense company with interests in the aerospace industry, in the field of weapons and information security. The company is firmly entrenched in Kazakhstan, beating out defense orders for itself, for example, on upgrading the Kazakhstan air defense system, which, as is known, is integrated with the Russian system.
Hard to work Evans rushing like a bulldozer. In 2008, at the personal request of Nazarbayev, he was elected independent director of the National Welfare Fund “Samruk-Kazyna”! Now many Western companies are consulting with Evans before “entering Kazakhstan”. Among the latest examples of successful negotiations are the launch of the EADS (European Aerospace and Defense Concern) activities in Kazakhstan and Finmecanica, Italy’s largest engineering holding, in Kazakhstan.
Peter Benjamin Mandelson
The next character in the cohort of the British people who mastered Kazakhstan is Baron Peter Benjamin Mandelson, a former European Commissar for Foreign Trade and a defendant in major corruption scandals in his homeland (in particular, the Yachtgate scandal with Oleg Deripaska is associated with the name of Mandelson).
Mandelson is a member of the Bilderberg club and the Lord Chairman of the Privy Council, including advisors to Her Majesty the Queen of Great Britain. Mandelson gives his advice now in Kazakhstan, then in Ukraine. In Ukraine, by the way, the baron has already presented his views on the modernization of Ukrainian trade. In Kazakhstan, Mandelson is acting more cautiously.
Next on the list is Alistair Campbell, former head of public relations in Downing Street, 10 and former adviser to Prime Minister Tony Blair. Campbell is considered the strongest political strategist in the UK. He is engaged in "corporate consulting" and lobbying of some energy companies in Kazakhstan. Alistair Campbell is a classic example of a British politician who delivers a fatal blow to the enemy, while continuing to smile at him friendly.
Has been to Kazakhstan and Tim Allan, a former Campbell deputy and a PR specialist.
Another figure is Jonathan Powell, the former head of the office of Tony Blair, and now his adviser. Powell is directly related to the special services. As the key person in the administration of Prime Minister Blair, Powell tried to smooth over the scandal with “spy stones” (the FSB conducted an operational survey of the work of British spies with containers in the form of stones), which marked the largest failure of the British special services over the half century.
It is difficult to assume that this solid British team performs in Kazakhstan tasks related to the development of the country - a member of the Eurasian Economic Union.
Nursultan Nazarbayev proved loyalty to the country's strategic course towards Eurasian integration. He understands and more than once stated that the West sees Kazakhstan as a banana republic and a storehouse of raw materials. However, like most politicians, he fears the West and therefore is overgrown with numerous consileries.
Of course, acting in Kazakhstan, the British will not copy the bulldozer tactics of the Americans, who, through NGOs, have already tried to arrange for Nazarbayev’s Maidan in Zhanaozen, and today they are cheating in Yerevan. How England acted in the 19th century, sending advisers such as Connolly or Burns to these lands, as it does today. This is a work designed for more than one year, and London hopes that it will bear fruit.
Sarah and Nursultan Nazarbayev and James Giffen
Here the main thing is to enter into trust, win over, and then “advise”, “lobby”, “promote”. Prior to Kazakhstan, Blair worked with Muammar Gaddafi, helping him choose business partners like the megabanks Goldman Sachs, HBSC, Societe Generale and JP Morgan, of which Blair is a freelancer. As a result, Libya collapsed, the National Fund of Libya was sucked, and Gaddafi was torn to pieces. One of the world's largest oil players, the British removed from the game at least fifty years.
And let's not forget that, having flooded Kazakhstan with VIP advisers, England does not stop the information war with the Nazarbayev regime, portraying the President of Kazakhstan as a persecutor of freedom, equality and democracy.
Of course, Nazarbayev is a strong politician. It does not bend. However, the Americans have the habit of bending, but the British work differently - they “love” and “advise”.
