RUS lead CSTO peacekeeping force to deploy to Kazakhstan to help with the riots going on there.

Dunno how big is this peacekeeping force.

Protests, which started about rising food and fuel prices have escalated to open violence against the current government who blames the violence on terrorist gangs. Clashes between the two sides gave left dozens dead, and Russian peacekeepers have deployed to the country.

The timing of this is quite interesting. Create uncertainty and havoc in a trusted ally of Russia, hundreds and hundreds away from the Ukraine, where Russia's space programme is located, right when Russia is close to finalising whatever plans they may have in the Ukraine. When tomorrow is a holiday in Russia for their Orthodox Christmas, when many senior officers and policy makers will be at their dacha, is impeccable. This could snowball into something that might just deflect Russia's attention from the Ukraine, allowing them to survive the next 4-6 weeks.

Maybe, depending on how much "fighting" will be needed in the 'Stan in question - we'll see 🍿

In New Russia the hat wears you. And asshole Kazaks are very nasty. Is good that brother Russians rescue poor downtrodden Kazakh proletariat.

Now say that with a Slavic accent.

They don't have the Sochi Olympics this time to use as a distractor…KAZ unrest will have to do…
