On Tuesday, Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev appealed to protesters in Aktau not to be led by destructive elements.

At the same time, the protesters in Aktau, to whom the country's government promised to reduce gas prices, made a new demand that the Kazakh president should come to meet them.

Earlier it became known that the price of gas in Kazakhstan will be reduced after the demands of the protesters.

In the west of Kazakhstan, for several days, mass protests have not subsided due to the rise in prices for liquefied gas. Since the New Year, the cost of gas at local gas stations has increased dramatically. If last year its retail price in this region was 50-60 tenge per liter (about 10 rubles), then since the beginning of this year prices at local gas stations have increased to 120 tenge per liter (about 21 rubles).
