Kazakhstan reportedly pulling armored vehicles to border with Kyrgyzstan

People had stuck on the Kyrgyzstan-Kazakhstan border for over a day due to massive traffic jam that emerged on October 10. Witnesses day Kazakhstan is pulling armored vehicles to the border.

A Facebook user Avlanbek Jumabayev posted a video footage of what is taking place on the border. “It seems that our neighbors are pulling massive forces to the border,” he writes. The user says the video was made on October 10 in the morning after people passed the checkpoint into Almaty. One can see military hardware on the roadside in the video.

“This video footage was shot by our citizens immediately after they crossed the border yesterday in the morning. Taxi drivers regularly driving Bishkek-Almaty route confirm the fact of our neighbors’ military buildup on the border. So, don’t drive that route unless you need it extremely,” Jumabayev comments.
