The administration of the region has been actively moving the administrative center for two months.

Within the framework of the working trip, Prime Minister Bakytzhan Sagintayev visited a number of facilities, where state bodies are currently located. Also, meetings are planned on the redeployment of state agencies in Turkestan and the development of Shymkent.

Brazil’s version of Trump: why is it a «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align: justify;">A racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a pro-torturer. Because of the profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such an image and was even considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker claiming that she was too ugly to be worth of raping. What is more, he said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why did Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How did such an «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president?<br /> </p>
