Russia’s Defense Ministry has confirmed the withdrawal of Russian troops stationed in the Central Asian state of Kazakhstan.

The Defense Ministry says troops were sent to monitor key installations in Kazakhstan, but now that the situation has improved, it has been decided to withdraw peacekeepers. According to the statement, it will take 10 days for the complete withdrawal of troops.

The deployment of peacekeepers by the Regional Military Coalition Collective Security Treaty Organization was requested by Kazakh President Qasim Jomarat Tokayev.

In addition to Russia, the military alliance included troops from Belarus, Armenia, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. The end of the military mission was announced at a ceremony by the Russian commander of the military alliance, General Andrei Serdyakov.

It should be noted that in the wake of the violent protests in Kazakhstan, the regional military alliance Collecto deployed troops from Russia and other member states, including about 2,000 Russian troops.

Kazakh President Qasim Jomarat Tokayev called the deployment of peacekeepers an important step in establishing peace and stability in his country.

It should be noted that during this month, thousands of people took part in anti-government demonstrations in Almaty, the financial center of Kazakhstan, which created a situation of instability in the country.

According to officials, the vandalism during the protests has cost the national treasury two to three billion dollars.
