Thirdly to Kazakhstan
I didn’t anticipate that the prelude to the New Great Game and Battle in January 2022 would be skipped right off the bat, and that I would be covering a topic and region that I am familiar with from the days of the USSR, perestroika, and the time of the West’s hypocritical behaviour towards now 30 year old Kazakhstan. Due to the unabated interest in more details related to the content of the last articles I decided to write a third one, on three topics with a short introduction and conclusion. 1) The Great Battle, 2) The main causes of the coup attempt, 3) The Three Nations of Kazakhstan. The themes can also serve to prepare the young generation of politicians, diplomats and academic analysts in the new era that will not knock on the door and wait for permission to enter the Czech basin. I can imagine that even some sensible members of the European left and the Czech government may find in the article, if not a warning, at least a reference or food for thought. The EU situation will require both soon.
The fact that Kazakhstan has a relatively strong resource-based economy compared to other post-Soviet countries often gives the illusion of self-sufficiency. Among other things, self-sufficiency represents a fatal challenge and risk for the contemporary Czech Republic and other states in Europe. That the political, economic, financial, and ethnic-social foundations of post-Soviet Kazakhstan would be shaken was predictable from the time of the Great Game, and for me personally inevitable. Why? Kazakhstan is geopolitically and resource-wise important, but for many years divided by, among other things, enormous corruption and ambitions. I have no documentary evidence of how many thousands of NGOs linked to George Soros’ funds, the CIA and the like are still operating in Kazakhstan today. If my memory serves me correctly, in my time there were more than ten thousand non-governmental non-profit organizations (NGOs)! It is worth to know that the supposedly independent National Endowment for Democracy (NED), one of the influential US instruments abroad directly controlled by US foreign intelligence, had at least twenty civil society development programs in Kazakhstan.
