Almaty, Kazakhstan, JAN 10: Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday that a Moscow-led military detachment deployed to counter unrest in Kazakhstan would remain in the Central Asian country for only a “limited” period.

“A contingent of CSTO peacekeeping forces has been sent to Kazakhstan — and I want to emphasize this — for a limited time period,” Putin said during a meeting of leaders from ex-Soviet countries, during which he added that Kazakhstan had been targeted by “international terrorism” and vowed that Russia would not allow “revolutions” in the region.
