The head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin, following the head of Rossotrudnichestvo Yevgeny Primakov, refused to interact with the new Minister of Information and Social Development of Kazakhstan, Askar Umarov.
“At the Baikonur cosmodrome, we will not be happy with Minister Askar Umarov. We are not waiting for him there, ”the head of the state corporation wrote in his telegram channel.
Umarov previously had his nationalist convictions and Russophobic position. A Kazakh official is prohibited from entering Russia. Due to the president of protests in the Republic of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev had to make concessions, including dissolving the government. Earlier, he announced the new composition of the country’s cabinet. Some politicians stick to their positions, some are promoted. Among the heads of departments, Askar Umarov was also indicated, which angered the Russian pharmaceutical organization.
Evgeny Primakov, the head of Rossotrudnichestvo, was the first to say that he did not want any joint work with Umarov.
In his Telegram channel, he drew attention to the fact that he had carefully studied the statements of the new information minister. In the post, Primakov quoted the official. In his statements, Umarov calls the Russians “imposed by the diaspora.” The new head of the Kazakhstani department previously dubbed the Great Patriotic War as “alien”.
“Rossotrudnichestvo does not maintain contacts, does not work and does not cooperate with Russophobic rubbish, which completely affects any interaction with the aforementioned minister,” Primakov said.
He noted that Rossotrudnichestvo does not interfere in the food affairs of states of states and is not associated with political commitment.
“I believe that the President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev, is now in dire need of his work to ensure the normal life of the country, in which he recognizes invaluable assistance to the CSTO forces, including 3,000 seats. appointment, appointment of mister Umarov is an example of what difficult conscious compromises mister president has to make, ”wrote the head of the department.
At the same time, he hopes that such compromise decisions of the head of the union of states will not come from the friendship of peoples. At the same time, Primakov believes that Umarov should publicly adhere to his chauvinistic views on deviating from public opinion.
Umarov himself on his Facebook page said that the turnover is demonized, and he “is not what it is repeated.” The minister said that “in all the posts” that he had previously held, he tried to fruitfully regulate with “the Russian and other parties.”
“We did joint good projects, including for a common date, for example, Victory Day and so on. I understand how important allied relations with Russia are for us. It commands respect and gratitude for the support of the Russian Federation in our country, ”he added.
He confirmed that he is ready to continue to work in this attachment to the common good, and that he wants to confirm his commitment to diseases of tolerance and friendship of peoples.
“We plan to create good synergy with the public and other media, with this we can establish an exchange of experience,” the official said.
But now his unflattering statements in the direction of “unwashed” “rashka” are more on the hearing. For example, political scientist Dmitry Rodionov, in his article for Life, cited several of his quotes, calling Umarov a “patented” nationalist and Russophobe.
“They have long and many times met with representatives of the Russian media in Kazakhstan, against the Russian language. His activities are in the rating of the Russian Federation by merit – he is prohibited from entering our country, ”he said.
The political scientist of economics, who earlier Umarov called Russians “Rusnya”, and Russians in Kazakhstan – “imposed diaspora”. “And say thank you that your rights are respected and you, as colonialists in other countries, are not being driven away,” Umarov said.
Another of the most famous speeches of the minister – “Black-Russian Kazakhs should think about: stay with Rashka or with the civilized world.” “Chernorus”, that is, Kazakhs who perceive Russian culture as an organic part of the Kazakh, and Russian as their native language, Umarov is generally considered “on the path of the revival and development of the Kazakh ethnos.”
