“Currently, a request has been received from the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry to appoint a new ambassador to Astana,” TASS quoted him as saying.
Smadiyarov added that Kazakhstan and Ukraine "have a complete mutual understanding on this issue."
Also, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan believes that the tone of the commentary of the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova regarding the Ambassador of Ukraine to the republic "is dissonant with the nature of the allied relations between Kazakhstan and Russia as equal strategic partners."
He announced the intention of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan to call the Russian ambassador on October 5 for a conversation.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said the day before that Moscow had previously been promised that the "Bandera emissary" Pyotr Vrublevsky would leave Kazakhstan forever, but now he has reappeared in the capital of the republic and attends diplomatic receptions as head of the diplomatic mission.
In this regard, on October 4, the Ambassador of Kazakhstan, Yermek Kosherbayev, was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry.
He was told about the categorical unacceptability of such a situation.
Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia Alexander Bastrykin instructed the investigators to check Vrublevsky's statements that "it is necessary to kill as many Russians as possible."
