They raised fuel prices. The rural part of the country needs subsidized fuel. They use map gas not gasoline???? Weird. KhaZakstan has huge petroleum reserves. Plus nuke weapons. I think it would be fine if people got first 70 gallons of fuel at a discount a month. More for farm tractors.
Well the rural people went into the city then started rioting. Then beheaded 3 cops. A couple days later shoot to kill go figure.
