Over the week, crude prices gained about 5% and on Friday Brent exceeded $83 per barrel, “putting it at its highest level since the price slide triggered by the first appearance of the omicron variant in late November,” said Carsten Fritsch, commodities analyst at Commerzbank.

Protests spread across the country of 19 million this week in outrage over New Year’s increase in prices for liquid petroleum gas (LPG), which many use to fuel cars.

Thousands took to the streets in Almaty and in the western province of Mangystau in protests that broadened to include anti-government slogans.

The next day protesters stormed government buildings, setting them ablaze and a nationwide state of emergency was declared.

Kazakh president Kassym-Jomart Tokayev on Friday rejected calls for talks with protesters after days of unprecedented unrest, authorizing his forces to shoot-to-kill without warning.

Meanwhile, the presidential office later said on Sunday that many “strategic facilities” in the country are under the guard of a Russia-led military alliance invited to restore order.4 Kazakhstan unrest Petrochemicals PETKazakhstan unrest triggers oil price hike; uranium less affected
