Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev

President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev considered the actions of the language patrols a “provocation on the instructions of the special services.” He stated this during the XXXI session of the Assembly of the People of Kazakhstan. His words are quoted by Sputnik Kazakhstan.

“All these actions are organized by professional provocateurs acting on instructions from the special services. All these actions in the language of these services are called active measures, — said Tokayev.

The Kazakh president did not specify which countries' special services organized such provocations.

Tokayev also stated that Kazakhstan is a multilingual state. “At the same time, Kazakh is the official language. and we must also remember this and take measures to strengthen the status of the Kazakh language, but not to the detriment of any other languages ​​and those citizens who speak other languages, — said the president.

Til Maydani's YouTube channel previously posted a series of videos of so-called language raids. The video contains conflicts that arose due to the fact that employees of shops and catering facilities did not serve customers in the state language— Kazakh.

The first videos about “language raids” appeared back in August last year. To the author of the channel Til Maydani— Kuata Akhmetova— then a criminal case was opened on inciting ethnic hatred. Akhmetov's lawyer then said that he left Kazakhstan and went to the capital of Ukraine.
