‘Almost 75% of Kazakhstan's population supports to use violence when they raise children’, said the representative of the UNICEF Children's Fund in Kazakhstan Yuri Oksamitny.

It is found during a study conducted by the Ombudsman for Human Rights and UNICEF in Kazakhstan in 2016. ‘It is more than half the populations and this is a social norm. It means there is a tolerant attitude towards children violence in society’, Oksamitny said.

According to him, Kazakhstani children face violence at home, in boarding schools, in schools and on the street. He also noted that UNICEF highly appreciates Kazakhstan’s work on the protection of children's rights.
