What to Prepare for: Opinions of Kazakhstani Political Scientists and Human Rights Defenders On Events in Russia
The aggravation of the military-political situation in Russia has stirred up the public in Kazakhstan. An Orda correspondent found out what our political scientists, lawyers and human rights activists think about what is happening
The well-known political scientist Dosym Satpayev considers it significant that the demarche deals a blow to the reputation of the Russian government within Russia itself. He wrote about this on his Facebook page.
"And here it doesn't even matter how long the military rebellion of Uruk-hai Prigozhin will last..Perhaps it will be quashed soon. And it is even possible that a purge will begin among his secret supporters in Putin's entourage on whom he relied. More importantly, this demarche deals a blow to the reputation of the Russian authorities within Russia itself, where many more support the war, it strikes at Putin's image in the eyes of those victims of the zombiebox who still saw him as a "great" strategist. But now it turns out that he can't even control his environment anymore"
Satpayev writes that Kazakhstan should prepare for any scenarios in the development around the situation in the future of its northern neighbor.
Political scientist Gaziz Abishev wrote in his telegram channel that the development of this event proves how tactically, strategically and historically correct Kazakhstan's position is. "Save yourself while the elements are raging around," Abishev wrote.
"Putin got what he had been cherishing and nurturing for 25 years, however, as did Nazarbayev,"human rights activist, Bakhytzhan Toregozhina, said on Facebook.
Popular lawyer and blogger Yerzhan Yessimkhanov spoke about Prigozhin and what a mistake the authorities made.
"Prigozhin's rebellion is absolutely natural. It was brought up by the same hands (of those - Ed.) whom Prigozhin is now fighting against. Because if you create an organization that does not comply to anyone but you, and to which no rules apply, sooner or later the leaders of this organization will have a question – why should we obey anyone at all? It is unclear how all this will end. So far, this is exactly a mutiny, and as the old poem says, "a mutiny cannot end in success – a successful one is called otherwise." And all this, after all, is not happening in our country, and so far it has only an indirect relation to us,"Yessimkhanov wrote in his telegram channel.
RMB: The founder of the Wagner PMCs, Yevgeny Prigozhin, published several audio messages on the night of June 24, in which he accused the Russian Defense Ministry of striking at the positions of Wagner mercenaries. He said that "There are 25 thousand of us, we are going to figure out why lawlessness is happening in the country." According to Prigozhin, the PMCs plans to "stop the evil that the country's military leadership is bringing"
Wagner mercenaries have seized control of Rostov. The President of Russia made an official appeal in which he spoke about Yevgeny Prigozhin's betrayal.
