The Non-Proliferation Treaty.

When Kazakhstan adopted a law on criminal liability for the dissemination of false information, I was sympathetic to this news.

I understand perfectly well that a false rumor about the bankruptcy of a bank can cause an outflow of deposits from it and lead to its real bankruptcy.

Corruption and democracy.

For many years, Kazakhstanis have been suffering from corruption in the country and demand to eradicate or at least reduce it. But all these calls are aimed only at fighting the consequences, not the causes. It’s like weeding the leaves of a weed without uprooting the root of the plant itself.

The attitude of Kazakhstanis to visiting Russians.

After the announcement of mobilization by Russian President Putin on September 21, a mass of Russians who did not agree to fight with Ukraine poured into Kazakhstan.

Shooting of the police officers.

     In Seoul, I turned out to be an unwilling witness to the riots related to impeachment to the country’s president, Ms. Pak Kun Hyo.

     I noticed one detail. During the clashes between the demonstrators and the police, many people in police uniforms filmed each incident, each scuffle, on the cameras. It was unusual to see this. …

Car repair in Italy.

       Once in Italy I talked to one local guy. He complained that he was given a small car at a service station for replacement.

      “What does it mean to replace,” I ask.

      – Well, I gave them my BMW X5 for repairs, and they give me a sedan 316 instead. Can you imagine? …

“Kings” and “leaders.”

     There are two types of dictators.

     The first is “kings” or “khans.”

     They take power for a long time and “squeeze” out of it the maximum of material benefits, become the richest people in their country, their family members or familiar cellists firmly establish themselves in the “Forbes” list, they own yachts, airplanes, newspapers, …
