On Thursday, January 13, Russian-led troops of the regional multilateral military bloc Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) began their withdrawal from Kazakhstan, where they had been deployed last week to restore order during the protests and unrest that marked a turning point in Kazakhstan.

Last week, Kazakhstan was the scene of unprecedented riots that had not been seen since its separation from the former USSR in 1991. These riots caused dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries. At least 12,000 people were detained.
