Russian troops leaving Kazakhstan after a week of violent protests caused by hike in fuel prices.
They were invited by the Kazakh government as it was unable to cope with demonstrators alone.
Russia sent a peacekeeping mission from the Collective Security Treaty Organization bloc, consisting of 2,030 troops and 250 units of military equipment, to Kazakhstan to help quell what Kazakh government called a ‘foreign run protest.’
Kazakhstan’s own special forces focused on Almaty, where clashes left more than 100 people dead.
At least 164 people have been killed, including three children, and almost 8,000 people arrested in Kazakhstan over the past several days.
