We did not choose our president

I wish Kazakhstan would align more closely with Europe. Similar to what happened in the Ukraine. I would love to live in a country with real democracy, where you feel genuinely free to use your right to vote. Everything that we have here is controlled from above. And the Russians are still involved of course.
But even Putin’s children are living in Europe. I think his wife as well. And if he ever retires he will also leave the country. No one really wants to stay.
We call it democracy but in the end it’s not. I really wish we would become more like Europe, I really do.

The people of Kazakhstan did not choose their president. Instead, the president chose the people.
