Violent protests did not stop after the arrival of the Russian army in Kazakhstan. More than 100 people, including 18 policemen, have been reported killed so far in the violence. Kazakh President Qasim-Jomar Doktow, who witnessed the violent protests, ordered the firing of his soldiers to quell the nationwide uprising.

On Friday, security forces recaptured the streets of Almaty, the main city of Kazakhstan, from protesters. The violence continued a day after Russia sent peacekeepers to help Kazakhstan end the uprising, with people setting fire and damaging public buildings. The sound of gunfire was also heard.

Mayor’s residence
Protesters looted the president’s residence and set the building on fire as they tried to seize the residence of the mayor of Almaty. Kazakhstan has been facing the worst protests since independence three decades ago. After seizing government buildings, the president referred to the protesters’ actions as terrorists.

Demonstration in the wake of rising oil prices
The Kazakh government announced on Tuesday evening the price of oil in the province of Mongkostov was 50 deng (Kazakh currency). The protests are due to rising gas prices in the Central Asian country. Meanwhile, the outcry increased to the extent of enforcing the emergency law in the country.
