MINSK, 12 January (BelTA) – The CSTO forces prevented a color revolution in Kazakhstan, Deputy Director of the Institute of Strategic Studies and Forecasts of Peoples' Friendship University of Russia Pavel Feldman said in an interview with Belarus 1 TV channel, BelTA has learned.
“Even today it is clear which forces stood behind the intervention. There are the United States, NATO, possibly Turkey and radical Islamist forces, which always, no matter how paradoxical it may seem, implement their plans either with the tacit consent of the West, or openly coordinating their actions with Washington. It turns out that the CSTO forces have shown how relevant this organization is, how important it is. For the first time in international history, the color revolution was stopped thanks to the coordination of efforts of the member countries of this alliance,” Pavel Feldman said.
The expert stressed that the alliance, created as an alternative to the NATO bloc, proves to be much more successful than its North Atlantic partner. “One must be able to recognize victories as well as defeats. What happened in Kazakhstan is a victory of the post-Soviet space, a victory of Russia, Belarus, the legitimate authorities of Kazakhstan over the collective West,” he added.
