Picture of Joe and Hunter Biden With Kazakhstan Oligarch Resurfaces

Note: This article may contain commentary or the author's opinion.

As Russian paratroopers are pouring into Kazakhstan in an attempt to quench an uprising amongst demonstrators who are furious with Kazakhstan’s corrupt government for doubling the price of liquefied petroleum gas, a picture of Joe and Hunter Biden has resurfaced that show them with a Kazakhstan oligarch and the former prime minister of Kazakhstan.

A picture of Joe and his son Hunter Biden was posted on an anti-corruption website the KIAR (Kazakhstan Initiative On Asset recovery). The picture featured the “Big Guy” Joe, his son Hunter, the former Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Karim Massimov, and a Kazakhstan oligarch Kenes Rakishev.

Take a look at the photo here:

The picture was first published in 2019 and came at a time when Hunter Biden was allegedly receiving payments from KazMunaiGas who created a joint venture with the Burisma group the Ukrainian company gas company that was giving  Hunter Biden a salary for being a board member.

According to the New York Post:

Between 2012 and 2014 — when his father Joe Biden served as Vice President — Hunter Biden worked as a go-between to Kenes Rakishev, a Kazakh oligarch with close ties to the country’s longtime kleptocratic leader Nursultan Nazarbayev, The Daily Mail reported.

The British tabloid said they obtained emails from “anti-corruption campaigners” in Kazakhstan showing Hunter making contact with Rakishev and attempting to facilitate investment for his cash in New York, Washington DC and a Nevada mining company.

Through his connections, emails show Hunter Biden successfully engineered a $1 million investment from Rakishev to filmmaker Alexandra Forbes Kerry — the daughter of ex-Sen. and former Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry, the report said.

So, not only his Hunter Biden is tangled up in this web of shady business dealing in Kazakhstan but also the United State’s current U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John  Kerry’s daughter. It appears Obama’s former admin and now the current Biden admin’s children are using their father’s and mother’s power to make money from corrupt oligarchs.

Now, let’s last forward to 2021, Kazakhstan and Russia are both claiming that the uprising amongst Kazakhstan citizens is a foreign-backed uprising. Kassym-Jomart Tokayev the current President of Kazakhstan is blaming the uprising on foreign-trained terrorist groups for the riots. Although, it appears from video and footage at the scene that the uprising is stemming from regular citizens who are sick of the corruption of the Kazakhstan government. In response to Russia’s claims, Biden’s Press Secretary stated:

There are some crazy Russian claims about the US being behind this. Let me just use this opportunity to convey that as absolutely false, and clearly a part of the standard Russian disinformation playbook.”

It’s reported that 2,500 CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organization) have now entered Kazakhstan to store the police. There have been over 2,000 demonstrators detained in the riots and 18 security officers have been killed. Government buildings have been seized and also have been lit on fire. Kazakhstan’s destabilization is very concerning, considering the large country sits right on the border of Russia.

If the uprising continues and the demonstrators turn their frustration toward  Russian paratroopers, then it’s quite possible a bloody massacre would occur.

Do you think the existing government is going in the right direction to benefit the people of the country?(Required)
