The recent events in Kazakhstan allow us to draw an unambiguous conclusion that there is not an internal spontaneous uprising, but a carefully planned and coordinated terrorist attack on the foundation of Kazakhstani statehood, vice-president of the Experimental Creative Center Foundation (Kurginyan Center) for scientific work Yury Byaly said on January 6 in a commentary for Rossa Primavera News Agency.
“We are witnessing not only well-organized strikes of large combat units of terrorists against infrastructure and security facilities but also well-organized and synchronized with these strikes information and psychological attack of numerous foreign (based in Ukraine, Poland and the Baltic States) Internet resources,” Yury Byaly says.
According to the military commandant’s office in Almaty, so far 14 servicemen have been killed in battles with terrorists, and two of them have been beheaded.
The expert notes that the recognizable professional style of the war and the synchronization with it of the external information support and the international context (acute discussion in the West of the upcoming talks with Russia) allow to exclude from consideration the version that it is a war of internal Kazakhstan clans for power in the country.
“No intra-Kazakhstani clans have appropriate fighters and information external terminals. That is, the popular version of ‘Tokayev vs. Nazarbayev’ is clearly unsuitable,” Byaly said.
Therefore, says the expert, we have to admit that we are talking about the infiltration of the most trained and interested militants (probably ISIL (organization banned in Russia)) from the Middle East – from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan – into Kazakhstan.
Most likely, in order not to have language problems with the local population – not only ethnic Kazakhs who fought in ISIL (organization banned in Russia), but also Uighurs from radical-terrorist East Turkistan Islamic Movement (organization banned in Russia). In this connection, let us emphasize that there are many ethnic Uighurs in Kazakhstan, especially in the southeast, in the area of Almaty, and in Chinese Xinjiang, bordering this Kazakh area, they still make up about half the population.
“This infiltration could have been achieved, firstly, by two routes: from Afghanistan through Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan or through Turkey, Azerbaijan, and the Caspian Sea. Such infiltration, secondly, could be realized only by very active and coordinated actions of intelligence of NATO member countries,” the vice-president of the Experimental Creative Center Foundation (Kurginyan Center) for scientific work says.
In this context, Byalyi stresses that during the last two years, both Afghanistan and Russia have repeatedly stated that “unidentified helicopters” (and in Afghanistan only US troops in the US led-coalition had them) regularly transport unknown fighters and consignments of weapons to the border areas with Tajikistan. Where these fighters disappeared is unknown, said Bialy. What is known is that the network of secret “heroin trails” through the mountains have been working uninterruptedly for all these years.
The expert notes that in Idlib in Syria, which is controlled by Turkey, there were also many Kazakh and Uyghur terrorists in the units and detachments of radical Islamists. And that after the war over Karabakh and the [creation] of the direct line to Azerbaijan, and after the establishment of the Turkic Union with its capital in Kazakh city Turkistan, “their transportation to Kazakhstan posed no problems.”
“Of course, both the ‘infiltration’ into Kazakhstan of terrorists and the organization of propaganda support for their current actions in Kazakhstan would not have been possible without the use of intelligence networks of NATO countries. Judging by the nature of action and centers of information activity, the largest role in this endeavor is likely to belong to the British intelligence,” Yury Byaly says.
Moreover, due to the possible role of Turkey in these events, the hasty offer of the Organization of Turkic States to assist Kazakhstan “should be considered with much caution”, Byaly warns and adds that the ambiguous position of the Kyrgyz parliament on the issue of military assistance to Kazakhstan suggests that “events similar to those in Almaty should be expected in Bishkek and Osh soon.”
