My name is Ayan and I'm Kazakh, I've been living almost whole life in Astana.
well to y'all, I want to say that although Borat is obviously a comedy, but in Kazakhstan there was a furious reaction to this movie. I have no problem with the movie, but I can see why a lot of kazakhs hate it.
The rest of the world don't know Kazakhstan. I studied 3 years abroad (England and Denmark) and I can tell that Western World see us as a part of "stan" countries, namely Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc. I dont want to offend these countries, but we are absolutely different. They have arabic culture, we have turkic. They speak arabic, we don't. They live by sharia/islamic laws, we are secular.
Before Borat we had problems with these kind of associations. We wanted to be recognized by the rest of the world. But after Borat came out, we faced other problem - now most of westerns think we live as barbarians and fuck our own relatives.
That's why kazakhs are so pissed off - Western world didnt know about us much, and all what they know now is Borat.

To reply to comments below - of course Astana (and Almaty) is exception comparing to the rest of Kazakhstan. We do have villages, where no electricity provided, etc. We do have a lot of problems. But we do not do incest and other middle ages shit. We are young country, which gained its independence just 27 years ago. We do have kind of authoritarism (because of the one President for 27 years), but which country at their beginning didn't have? It's all about evolution. But the thing is, we try our best to be on the same level as Western countries.

Good luck, man! Keep it on!

And everyone is really welcome to Kazakhstan to see it with your own eyes, how we live and how we do stuff. :)

You ppl reacting like Kazakhstan is unknown place mysterious and etc lol even if the foreigners do not travel here, we Kazakhs travel a lot around the world. I traveled the whole Europe when I was studying there. So our country is developing too fast but the ppl are even more progressive that our government can't keep up. That's why you see many buildings either too old from soviet past or too modern that have solar panels etc. The break between old and modern is crazy
Thanks for your videos 😊

The roads are busy. The pavements are empty.
