President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev declared that order had largely been restored in Kazakhstan but vowed to push ahead with a deadly crackdown after Russian troops helped suppress mass protests that had swept the country.

Russia and its allies dispatched more troops to help quell the demonstrations and retake the airport in Almaty, with 75 planes used by the government in Moscow to deploy units, according to the Defense Ministry.
