Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev announced on Friday that he has given permission for law enforcement agents to use lethal force to quell the unrest that has engulfed the country since the new year.

“I have given an order to the law enforcement and military to shoot to kill without warning,” Tokayev announced on Friday.

The president has rejected the idea of resolving the ongoing crisis through negotiations. “It’s nonsense. What kind of talks can one have with criminals and murderers?” he insisted.

Kazakhstan is facing “armed and well-trained militants, both local and foreign,” Tokayev said. Describing them as “bandits and terrorists,” he asserted that they should be “eliminated.”

The situation has mostly stabilized in Almaty, Aktobe, and elsewhere across the country, he said, but the security forces are continuing their “anti-terrorist operation,” as not all of the perpetrators have laid down their weapons.

The state of emergency will now be gradually lifted, according to the president. The internet, which had been switched off a few days ago, will be restored in some parts of the country, he promised, adding that its reinstatement would nonetheless not allow anyone to “freely post fabrications, slander, insults, and inflammatory appeals.”

Those who attacked the country acted in accordance with a well-designed plan, Tokayev said, targeting key military, administrative, and social facilities in almost all of the regions.

“Only in Almaty, there were 20,000 bandits,” he alleged. They were backed by propaganda experts who spread fake news online and manipulated the mood of the people, the president insisted.

He also thanked fellow member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) – Armenia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, and Tajikistan – for answering his call and deploying peacekeepers to help restore order in Kazakhstan. The CSTO mission would remain in the country “for a limited period of time” to support the local security forces, the president clarified.

Earlier on Friday, the Kazakh Interior Ministry said 26 armed assailants had been killed and 18 others injured during the recent outbreak of violence. More than 3,700 people have been detained. There were at least 18 fatalities among the military and police as of Thursday, reports outlined.

People took to the streets in Zhanaozen and Aktau on the first days of 2022 in response to a two-fold hike in the liquefied petroleum gas price, which had previously been subsidized by the government. Despite the authorities promising to keep the price under control, the protest swiftly spread to other cities, and turned increasingly violent.

Almaty, the largest city, has become the focus of the unrest, with demonstrators – some of whom were equipped with firearms – storming the mayor’s office, the old presidential palace, and the airport. Numerous businesses have been ransacked and looted, with police stations also being attacked.

3) 2022 The People Take Back Our World

2022 is the year of the tiger. The year we go on the offensive. Every person who know the truth can take back our world:

Immediately halt the vaccine roll out

This is done by the people. Everyone tells every person who is giving out the jabs to that they are murdering people and we know it and will hold them personally liable. Be silent no longer. Go to the source. Block the rollout. Ten Million people each day are being put on an irreversible countdown to vaccine death. This must stop now.

The police must do their job and arrest those responsible for this genocide

This is accomplished by everybody going to your police station and delivering proof of genocide and a demand for them to do their job and arrest based on evidence provided. Arrest those responsible or get out of the way and let us arrest them and end this genocidal plot.

Masks of slavery and obedience must be removed

This is done by everyone who knows the truth must inform anyone wearing a mask that there is a big movement for people to remove their masks of slavery that are hurting them. They should join with this movement amd be free of the mask.

Also many people who are aware of the truth wear masks at certain times; there must be a zero compliance policy put into affect. Never put a mask on again for any reason.

• Help those who have been vaccinated

There is a ticking time bomb in every vaccinated person who did not get a placebo. This must be the immediate focus of every true health care provider. The vaccine must be detoxed and assistance given to reverse the damage. Inform those who have been vaccinated that they need help before it’s too late.

Armed the truth, united we stand and actively take back our world.
