Astana. June 19. KazTAG - President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, in his speech during the award ceremony for active participants in flood control measures, commented on the attack on Kazakh journalist Aidos Sadykov, in Kyiv, reports Akorda.
“Kazakhstan has taken a course towards strengthening the rule of law. You know my principled position: law and order must reign in the country. All conflicts and disagreements in our society should be resolved exclusively within the legal framework, on the basis of current legislation, in accordance with basic international standards. It is from this point of view that it is necessary to consider the crime that occurred yesterday in Kyiv against Kazakh citizen Aidos Sadykov. I have instructed the diplomatic department and law enforcement agencies to send official inquiries regarding this serious incident. If necessary, Kazakh official bodies are ready to join the investigation to assist in identifying the truth,” Tokayev emphasized on Wednesday.
The attempt on Sadykov’s life was made on June 18, when he was in a car near his home in Kyiv. An unknown person shot him and fled. Next to the author of the opposition project “Base” was his wife, co-author of the project Natalya Sadykova. She was not injured. Later it was reported that the journalist had a surgery and was in intensive care.
