Kazakhstan, Chevron, US and Russia


If Kazakhstan were not a major oil producer, the world would not be paying much attention to their protests. We have multiple players. The government is dictatorial and corrupt and allied with Russia. Wealth inequality hurts the people, particularly in the provinces. Chevron is the major oil producer. The US and UK want to expand Western influence. Putin wants to expand his influence.
