LIGHTNING: Tokayev appealed to the CSTO for help (VIDEO)

The President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, said that he turned to the heads of the CSTO countries for help, since he considers the events in the republic to be external aggression.

He called the participants in the riots “terrorist gangs.”

At present, a fierce battle is going on near Alma-Ata between terrorists and soldiers of the airborne unit of the Ministry of Defense, Tokayev said on the air of the Khabar 24 TV channel.

He said that the airport and 5 planes, including foreign ones, were hijacked by terrorists.

“Gangs seize premises where there are small arms, are fighting with cadets of schools,” the president said.

“Relying on the collective security treaty, today I turned to the heads of the CSTO states to help Kazakhstan overcome this terrorist threat.

In fact, this is no longer a threat, it is an undermining of the integrity of the state, and the most important thing is an attack on our citizens, who ask me, as the head of state, to urgently help them, “concluded Tokayev.
