The world nuclear war behind the unrest in Kazakhstan

Translated by: MOS Gospel Team – linli

The Central Asia country of Kazakhstan has become the focus of global attention at the beginning of 2022, as soaring fuel prices led to protests. The continuation of the event has quickly driven a surge in international radioactive material prices. It is reported that as the world’s largest uranium producer, Kazakhstan accounts for 40% of the world’s output, and half of the uranium is purchased by the CCP. This incident accidentally revealed that the CCP is accumulating a large amount of uranium stockpiles.

International uranium prices rose about 8 percent this week, the biggest gain since September last year, according to the Financial Times. Consultancy CRU Group said Kazakh uranium mining areas have not been affected by the protests, but the main export route passes through the Almaty region where there is a major conflict. So shipping uranium to Communist China may encounter some logistical hurdles, especially for Beijing imports up to half of the country’s production. The company also broke the news that in the past 10 years, the CCP has accumulated a large amount of uranium stockpiles, which can meet the uranium demand for 11-12 years.

As soon as the news came out, Russia sent troops to Kazakhstan in the name of helping to maintain stability. Russia’s move into Kazakhstan has aroused strong dissatisfaction in the United States; what worries the United States even more is that, according to an annual report submitted to Congress by the Pentagon. As of 2020, Communist China is developing a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile, which will “significantly increase the its nuclear-capable missile force.” Over the next five years, Communist China’s land-based ICBMs are expected to have around 200 warheads that are “capable of threatening the United States”. During the same period, the U.S. nuclear arsenal totaled 3,750 nuclear warheads.

Just two months ago, the Pentagon warned Communist China that it was building 110 missile silos. But Fu Cong, director-general of the arms control department of the Chinese foreign ministry, told the media on January 4th that Beijing would continue to “modernize our nuclear arsenal and make it safer and more reliable.”

Although the CCP has insisted for years that its nuclear weapons are only for national security and not an offensive nuclear strike, the day before Fu Cong’s speech (January 3rd), the CCP joined four other permanent members of the UN Security Council. He said that they will work together to stop the further proliferation of nuclear weapons and avoid nuclear conflicts, but the CCP’s frantic accumulation of uranium stockpiles and the continuous construction of missile silos is enough to prove that improving nuclear weapons capabilities has long been one of the grand plans of the CCP and the United States in the arms race.
