Let us remind you that protests have been taking place in Kazakhstan for several days. People  took to the streets of cities due to the rise in gas prices . Citizens demanded the resignation of the president and the government and spoke out against corruption.

Against the background of “gas” protests in Kazakhstan, the country’s president, Kasim-Zhomart  Tokayev, accepted the resignation of the government . He decided to transfer the interim duties of prime minister to Alikhan Askhanovich Smailov.
