Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the head of the President's Office, believes that one of Russia's next targets could be Kazakhstan.

He said this in an interview with Channel 24.

"They have always had Kazakhstan as their target. It is simply unclear why Kazakhstan has not yet understood this. But for Russia, there is no CSTO, there is no Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan... There is only Russia, which must kill, must take something, must to dictate the conditions. These countries are simply "strange" that they have not understood this yet after Georgia, after our Crimea, after the start of this full-scale war, etc., Podolyak noted.

We will remind, after the failure of their army in Ukraine and the collapse of the plans to "take Kyiv in two days", Russian propagandists began to discuss the new victim of aggression - Kazakhstan.

On a talk show, they said that "Nazi trials" could begin in the country.

It should be noted that after the full-scale invasion of Ukraine and the first defeats, Putin demanded from the CSTO member states to introduce "peacekeepers" into the territory of Ukraine.

In turn, the President of Kazakhstan, Tokayev, refused military assistance to Putin within the CSTO and declared that he would not recognize the so-called "LDNR".

In September, it became known that Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan altogether prohibited their citizens from fighting in Ukraine.

Later, a member of the Russian State Duma from Putin's United Russia party Yevgeny Fedorov threatened aggression against Armenia as well.

He said, this "state illegally left the USSR."
