A slap on Putin.  Kazakhstan's president talks about "quasi-states"

The President of Kazakhstan assessed that international law based on the UN Charter and its two basic principles – the right of states to self-determination and the right to territorial integrity – are incompatible with each other in the context of the breakaway republics.

– That is why we do not recognize Taiwan, Kosovo, South Ossetia and Abkhazia. This principle will also apply to semi-state regions, which in our opinion are Donetsk and Lugansk – he added.

Kasim Umart Tokayev uttered these words in the presence of Vladimir Putin. The chairs together participated in the panel discussion.

Kazakhstan, one of Russia’s closest allies and its southern neighbor, rejected a request in February to include its forces in the attack on Ukraine.. In addition, the former Soviet republic stated that it does not recognize the breakaway republics created by Russia in the Donbass, which were used by Russian President Vladimir Putin as a pretext for aggression in Ukraine.

The decision of the old ally of Russia was met with criticism and opposition from the government in Moscow with the support of the United States.

“We welcome Kazakhstan’s statement that it does not recognize LPR and DPR, and we also welcome Kazakhstan’s refusal to send its forces to join Putin’s war in Ukraine,” the National Security Council wrote at the time in a statement.
