The West has an anti-Russian "Great Turan" doctrine

Summary of Disinformation

The West’s objective is to encircle Russia entirely. To the south, this is achieved through the “Great Turan” doctrine. This is comparable to the “Anaconda Ring” plan along Russia’s western borders. The West is attempting to pull Kazakhstan into this anti-Russian “Great Turan” doctrine.

The transition of the Kazakh alphabet from Cyrillic to Latin and Kazakhstan’s plans to host two US military bases on the Caspian Sea are two indicators of success of the West’s agenda.

No evidence is provided about the "Great Turan" doctrine according to which the West is allegedly attempting to create a ring of unfriendly states along Russia's southern border.

The allegations that Kazakhstan is allowing foreign militaries to establish bases on its territory are false. Claims that Kazakhstan plans to host foreign military bases on the Caspian Sea were officially denied by the Kazakhstani embassy in Moscow in 2018.

This disinformation message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about the belligerent West attempting to encircle Russia (see an earlier example here).
