PhD in Law, human rights activist Mark Feygin commented on the statement of the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev about the non-recognition of the "independence" of the so-called "LPR". According to the expert, this hit Moscow.

Mark Feygin told Channel 24 about this.

With his statement, the human rights activist believes, Tokayev wanted to show Putin that he was not his boss. Even the former president of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, did not allow himself this. However, it is worth remembering that Tokayev could make a statement for the benefit of his country.

Even Nazarbayev did not allow himself this. This does not make Tokayev a hero; let's not have illusions. This is politics and a game. Of course, he does it in his own favor. But for Moscow in a war, this is a huge vulnerability

Mark Feygin

In Putin's presence at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, Tokayev refused to recognize the "independence" of the Kremlin-controlled "L/DPR", calling the "republics" "quasi-state territories."
