The press service of the President of Kazakhstan reported that Tokayev refused awards before the end of his term, therefore he did not accept the Order of Alexander Nevsky. Peskov said there were no plans to award the President of Kazakhstan
Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov did not confirm the information that the President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev, refused to accept the Order of Alexander Nevsky.
“I don’t know where this information comes from, because no awards were planned. This was not in the plans,»,— he said to “Wake up.”
On the eve of the fact that Tokayev did not accept the order, Kazakh political scientist Yerbol Yedilov said. He explained this by the fact that the President of Kazakhstan decided not to accept any awards until the expiration of his term, & mdash; both domestic and foreign. The press service of the head of state confirmed this.
The Order of Alexander Nevsky can be awarded to foreign politicians for their merits in the development of multilateral cooperation with Russia and assistance in its socio-economic development.
In 2015, Russian President Vladimir Putin awarded Tokayev's predecessor Nursultan Nazarbayev with the order “as a token of merit, for his initiative in matters of integration processes that have come to a logical conclusion.”
On June 17, Tokayev took part in the plenary session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum and met with Putin. He, among other things, stated that Kazakhstan does not recognize the independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics (unlike Russia, which did so on February 21), and considers them quasi-state territories. Explaining his point of view, Tokayev said that two principles of the UN Charter came into conflict— the right to self-determination and territorial integrity, and if the first is realized throughout the world, then more than 500 countries will appear. For this reason, Kazakhstan does not recognize Taiwan, Kosovo, South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
