Nur-Sultan/UNI/Sputnik: Kazakhstan resumed flights via the international airport of Aktau from January 8, a correspondent of Sputnik Kazakhstan reported, citing authorities of the Mangystau Region.
The flights which were suspended earlier this week because of the civil unrest got resumed today at 04:00 GMT.
Massive protests in Kazakhstan began earlier in the week as residents of Zhanaozen and Aktau opposed a two-fold increase in prices of liquefied petroleum gas.
The protests then spread to other cities, resulting in violent clashes with the police, looting and vandalism.
President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev declared a state of emergency until January 19 and invited the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) peacekeeping forces to help bring the situation under control.
