Hundreds of people came for anti-government protests in Nur-Sultan and Almaty, ONAreports citing Akipress.

Anti-government protests are held in the central park in Almaty. In Nur-Sultan protesters rally near the city administration. People reportedly protest against upcoming snap presidential election set for June 9, demand to improve social security for people with disabilities, mothers of multiple children, protest against the construction of a nuke plant.
