Socialist Movement of Kazakhstan: On the political situation in the country

We would also like to present our vision of the current political situation in Kazakhstan in the light of the ongoing market reforms in strengthening the positions of the restored capitalism. 

These processes are accompanied by an intensification of reaction and the curtailment of all democratic rights, as well as the entry into new relations with imperialism of the United States and the EU, despite participation in other blocs and alliances, such as the EEMP, SCO and CSTO.

KKE: Condemnation of anti-democratic actions by the authorities in Kazakhstan and Latvia

Source: inter.kke.gr.

Regarding the imprisonment of Vadim Kuramshin:

Vadim Kuramshin.
The Delegation of the KKE in the European Parliament, tabled a question to the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy is relation to the persecution in Kazakhstan. The question noted that:
Vadim Kuramshin has been in prison in Kazakhstan for the last 4 years since 2012, when he was condemned to 12 years imprisonment on false and fabricated charges. In reality, he was imprisoned for his activity against the violation of democratic rights and gains by the Kazakhstan regime. It was no accident that his arrest and imprisonment happened immediately after his participation in a OSCE event in Warsaw, where he talked about instances of torture in the prisons of Kazakhstan.
He himself has made accusations that he has been the victim of inhuman treatment in Kazakhstan's prisons.
The current bourgeois regime that emerged in Kazakhstan after the overthrow of socialism and the dissolution of the USSR is constantly showing its anti-democratic and anti-people character, violently and murderously suppressing labour struggles, banning the activity of the CP of Kazakhstan, imposing new anti-democratic laws to control and more strictly manipulate the trade unions and to reduce labour rights and gains, imprisoning defenders of democratic rights.
