Astana. November 22. KazTAG - Almost 210 Kazakhstani students have returned from Hong-Kong due to protests, reports the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
"The General Consulate jointly with the association of Kazakhstani students in Hong-Kong got in touch with all the students from Kazakhstan and recommended them to leave the city. Up to date 208 our students have left. In the near future, other 14 students will leave.
