EUPOL/ Kazakhstan 

nothing to see here, Just a nation entirely removing itself from the internet... I'm sure nothing bad is going on there at all.

EUPOL/ Kazakhstan 

@TheGibson even the official govt/public sector sites have been switched off. There seems to be some LTE connectivity (maybe from border areas?) and ISDN-quality video of the protests/violence appearing on timelines; I'm not sure if this is done to save bandwidth or deliberately low resolution footage being used to protect those at the frontline (could well be both)

@vfrmedia It's a bad sign... In times like these I like to think of the helpers... like those who enable such mischief... Cisco, Palo Alto, Motorola, etc...

re: EUPOL/ Kazakhstan 

@TheGibson I'd be amazed if the internal networks/VPNS of the public sector in KZ were completely shut down and some routes may remain via China (ironically its possible the protest footage is leaking via these remaining networks, which would explain its low resolution as I would expect folk there to have the same modern smartphones as anywhere else in the World..)

@omni @thegibson @vfrmedia Looking at the "Resources" bit of the Kazakhstan wikipedia article leaves me wondering which is more urgent for a foreign usurper: electronics minerals, oil, or phosphate. Poor Kazakhstan..
