Armenia is taking steps to organize a Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) summit on the situation in Kazakhstan. The Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan telephoned Russian President Vladimir Putin about this. Armenia is the current chairman of CSTO. The summit should be online. CSTO is an intergovernmental military alliance to which former Soviet states belong.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Kazakh counterpart Kassym-Jomart Tokayev discussed on Saturday the restoration of « order » in Kazakhstan after days of violence and unrest, as several high-ranking officials were arrested on suspicion of high treason.

Hundreds of citizens and military personnel were injured and killed in the recent riots in the Kazakh city of Almaty. Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev declared a state of emergency until January 19 because of the unrest in the country and called on the CSTO peacekeepers to help bring the situation under control. The CSTO troops have already arrived in the Central Asian nation.

The former head of Kazakhstan’s security intelligence service was arrested on Saturday (January 8) on suspicion of high treason.

Kazakhstan’s National Security Committee (KNB) said in a statement on Saturday that his former boss Karim Masimov – who was fired earlier this week – was arrested along with several other officers.
