A state of emergency (state of emergency) has been introduced throughout Kazakhstan. This was reported by the Sputnik Kazakhstan Telegram channel.

This regime restricts movement, introduces a ban on mass gatherings and strikes, and also allows law enforcement officers to conduct personal searches of citizens and cars.

Earlier, the head of state, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, against the background of protests, introduced a state of emergency in Nur-Sultan from January 5 to 19.

Protests in Kazakhstan began on Sunday, January 2, due to an increase in gas prices for cars from 60 to 120 tenge (from 10 to 20 rubles) per liter. The protesters demanded that the first president of the republic, Nursultan Nazarbayev, leave politics.
