Kazakh and Ukrainian activists held protests near the UN headquarters in New York.

Kazakh activists took to the streets on the day of the meeting between US President Joe Biden and the heads of Central Asian countries, writes Village Kazakhstan.

The protesters demanded the release of political prisoners Marat Zhylanbaev, the leader of the unregistered opposition party “Alga, Kazakhstan!”, as well as activists Duman Muhammedkarim and Aigerim Tleuzhanova, who are in custody in Kazakhstan.

The protesters, among other things, expressed support for Ukraine and said that Kazakhstan should leave the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).

In addition, protesters demanded the introduction of personal sanctions against Kassym-Jomart Tokayev and President of Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov, indicating that they are helping Russia to circumvent international sanctions. Other activist demands include an international investigation into the events of Bloody January.

Ukrainians also did not stand aside and came out to protest with posters.

“Today, near the UN building, where the General Assembly is taking place, New Yorkers held a rally in support of Ukraine and its delegation! Thank you!" – Vlad Spektor wrote on his Facebook page.

Some posters listed Russia's invasions of various countries over the years as a UN reminder of "Russian cannibalism against humanity and freedom."

Other protesters argued that “the UN is a failure and the organization needs to be dissolved,” and also called for “the UN to open its eyes. This is genocide."
