Earlier protests swept the whole of Kazakhstan: people are demanding the resignation of the government.

Protests over gas prices began in the Mangistau region of Kazakhstan. 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 doubled - up to 120 tenge per liter (about 21 rubles).

Regions and million-plus cities are rebelling. Demonstrators flooded the streets of Nur-Sultan, Almaty, Zhanaozen, Aktobe and Aktau. Protesters in Aktau put forward a new demand: President Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev must come to meet them. The protesters are trying to storm the building of the regional administration.

At first, the authorities met halfway and announced a price reduction to 80-90 tenge. Then they agreed to reduce gas prices below the initial ones - up to 50 tenge.
