Recently, a Kazakh military transport plane crashed near the city of Shymkent. Everyone on board was killed in the crash. Among those killed was the acting director of National Security Committee's Border Guard Service, Colonel Turganbek Stambekov.

Maybe I have been watching too much Rubicon or playing too much Alpha Protocol, but I have a hypothesis that somebody wanted him to turn a blind eye to border security, and when he refused to play ball they removed from the situation. It could have been organized crime elements wanting to keep their smuggling routs open. It could have been his number two wanting to get a promotion. It could have been foreign intelligence agencies wanting to eliminate an obstacle so they can put someone more cooperative in place. Who knows?

It could have been shoddy Russian engineering.

I could see China interested in grabbing some of that land for their ever-exploding population.

I could see Russia wanting to reassert power over the region.

I could see the U.S. wanting to retain their global empire.

I could see terrorists and smugglers wanting easier access to the country (especially for the human trafficking gig).

Who fucking knows, when it comes to the former Soviet bloc literally anything is a possibility.
