Kazakhstan is spiraling into chaos as citizens react to a government-imposed hike in the price of fuel. Protests are erupting across the nation and world leaders are urging restraint and peaceful dialogue. The cabinet has resigned and agreed to a six-month reinstatement of fuel price limits but it hasn’t managed to quell the increasingly violent unrest taking hold of the country. Arsonists set the mayor’s office and presidential residence on fire in Almaty, the country’s largest city, and police reportedly responded with gunfire. Protesters in Almaty have also attacked journalists and disrupted the international airport. The government has begun a “counter-terrorist” crackdown and promised political reforms. The Russia-led Collective Security Treaty Organization has mobilized forces to help restore order in Kazakhstan. RT America’s Alex Mikhailovich reports.
