The first Kazakh cosmonaut called on the CSTO countries to send troops to Kazakhstan

Major General of the Kazakh Air Force made an unexpected statement on the state TV channel.

On Wednesday, On January 5, against the backdrop of riots in Kazakhstan, Major General of the Air Force of this country Toktar Aubakirov, who was the first Kazakh cosmonaut, on the state TV channel “Bribe” called on the member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) to send troops. p>

Telegram-channel Baza reports this.

The former cosmonaut complained that the protesters in Almaty “destroyed shops, stripped young cadets in this cold weather.” He sees a way out of the situation with military assistance from other countries.

“Call … We are members of the CSTO … Then let the CSTO troops come in and help us,” Toktar Aubakirov turned to the country's authorities.

In his opinion, help from one country will not be enough, so all the CSTO members should send troops.

“I have to call from a large association. Not from one country. If one country enters, our neighbors, they will not come out. Let this large association come in and help us with the troops, “the general said.

The CSTO is a military-political international organization, which includes Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

As a reminder, earlier President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko held telephone conversations with President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and President of Kazakhstan Kasim-Jomart Tokayev. The topic of the conversation was mass protests in the country.
