As the speaker of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said on January 9, the majority of Ukrainians in Almaty, who cannot leave Kazakhstan due to canceled flights, are 116 citizens. Fortunately, no Ukrainians were killed, injured or detained during the mass protests.
The unrest in Kazakhstan began against the background of the rise in the price of autogas, clashes with the security forces, the seizure of administrative buildings and looting began in the cities.
By January 4, protests had gripped the entire country. In several large cities, including Almaty, clashes broke out between protesters and security forces. A critical level of terrorist threat has been declared in Kazakhstan.
As of January 9, since the beginning of the protests in Kazakhstan, 164 people have died, including three children.
