Russian Russian, Slavic and Cossack Organizations of Kazakhstan (ARSK) called for declaring the Ambassador of Ukraine to Kazakhstan, Pyotr Vrublevsky, persona non grata in the republic because of his statements about Russians, to be declared persona non grata in Kazakhstan.
This is reported by TASS with reference to the words of the chairman of the ARSK Vladimir Bozhko.
“Such statements are incompatible with the status of an ambassador and diplomatic ethics. Such demarches encroach on peace and harmony in our country, where more than 120 ethnic groups, including Russians and Ukrainians, live in peace and friendship. In this regard, the ARSK demands from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan to declare the Ambassador of Ukraine Vrublevsky persona non grata,” Bozhko said.
ARSK also asked the law enforcement agencies of Kazakhstan to check the fact of the distribution of a video in which a Ukrainian diplomat talks about the need to kill Russians, and to bring to justice the citizens who participated in the creation of the video.
The day before, the Council of the Assembly of People of Kazakhstan called the words of the Ambassador of Ukraine unacceptable. “We call on all Kazakhstanis not to succumb to provocations that sow hostility and distrust, and, on the contrary, to protect and strengthen peace in the country and the unity of the people for the sake of the present and future of our children,” reads the address of the Assembly, chaired by the President of Kazakhstan Kassym—Jomart Tokayev.
