Kazakhstan Fully Resumes Passenger Railway Traffic Following Civil Unrest

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 08th January, 2022) Kazakhstan has fully resumed the passenger railway traffic which was disrupted by the civil unrest, a correspondent of Sputnik Kazakhstan reported, citing the national railway company of Kazakhstan Temir Zholy (KTZ).

KTZ also opened a digital platform for buying tickets without access to the internet.

Mass protests in Kazakhstan began earlier in the week as residents of Zhanaozen and Aktau opposed a two-fold increase in prices for liquefied petroleum gas. The protests then spread to other cities, resulting in violent clashes with the police, looting and vandalism.

President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev declared a state of emergency until January 19 and invited the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) peacekeeping forces to help bring the situation under control.
