Forum 18 Archive: KAZAKHSTAN: “A general unwillingness to properly protect human rights” – 25 February 2015.

Kazakhstan pretends to be a modern democratic state, but it is, in fact, nothing less than a heavily cosmetised (post)communist dictatorship, where religious persecution is rampant.

If oil money would make countries civilised, the whole Middle East would look like the Garden of Eden. It obviously does not, not does Kazakhstan (or other similar ‘stan’s, like Azerbaijan, for instance).
