"There will be no new Russia until Russians, in particular liberal ones, realize that they are colonizers" - Kazakh researcher

There are many parallels between the history of Ukraine and Kazakhstan.

The Germs of the Russian World: Who Supports Russia in Europe

In the middle of October 2016 Russian Orthodox Church opened its “spiritual and cultural center” by placing a golden-domed cupola on top of the future Saint Trinity church in Quai Branly.
