Following an intervention by neighboring Russia, which sent 3,000 paratroopers in to regain control, Kazakh authorities now appear to be regaining control of the country’s largest city, Almaty.
But they are struggling even with the help of Russia’s forces.

Despite being billed as a ‘peacekeeping’ mission by Moscow, the US was critical of the deployment of Russian troops. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinkin called the situation “concerning” and said that “one lesson in recent history is that once Russians are in your house, it’s sometimes very difficult to get them to leave,” during a press conference with reporters on Friday.
The uprising has caused an already-tense situation between Russia and NATO to become more volatile, with Russia believing that the west had direct involvement in the situation in Kazakhstan.
Considering the close connection to the Biden’s, it’s no wonder why. Hunter ‘regularly’ met with Kazakh businessmen linked to Massimov and attempted to facilitate investment for his cash in New York, Washington, DC, and a Nevada mining company.
In an email from 2016, Hunter Biden also refers to Massimov as his ‘close friend’ when questioned about the photo above.
Keep in mind, this was during Joe’s time as VP.
UPDATE: It wasn’t just one meeting
Hunter Biden said Massimov was his “close friend.”
That close friend has now been arrested for attempting to overthrow the government of Kazakhstan. pic.twitter.com/Wrodpmpzzo
