tengrinews.kz. “Kazakhstan's Central Bank on ongoing depreciation of the tenge" - Kazakhstan's Central Bank is decreasing its participation in the internal FX market to retain the international reserves, Tengrinews.kz reports, citing the Central Bank's Press Service. Back in September and October 2015 the Bank steered away from the approach announced August 20 [to shift from the fixed currency band to the free float exchange rate] and resorted to sales of FX in the domestic market. “The share of the Central Bank in the FX market [in these two months] reached 60%. Out of the National Oil Fund [accumulating windfall oil revenues] and gold and FX reserves of the National Bank a total of over $5 billion was sold at the FX market to balance the tenge exchange rate".

eurasianet.org. “Kazakh Students Complain About Being Part of Compulsory Crowds" - Many young people enter universities with the hope that one day their education will help them stand out from the crowd. But in Kazakhstan, it seems you have to stand in the crowd first.

rferl.org. “Poland To Sue Russia Over Return Of Crashed Presidential Plane" - Poland will sue Russia for withholding the wreckage of a Polish jet that crashed over Russia in 2010, killing the Polish president, the country's foreign minister-designate said on November 10. Russia has declined to return the wreckage, arguing it needs to conclude its own inquiry. Witold Waszczykowski told TVN24 that Poland will sue Russia in the Strasbourg-based European Court of Human Rights for "dragging its feet" and "withholding Polish property."

reuters.com. “Putin's daughter, a young billionaire and the president's friends" - The Russian leader's younger daughter Katerina is emerging as a woman of influence in the next generation of Moscow's elite. Since Vladimir Putin began cementing his grip on Russia in the 1990s, many of his friends have grown famously rich. Not so the president himself, say his supporters, who insist Putin is above the money grab that has marked his reign. His public financial disclosures depict a man of modest means. In April, Putin declared an income for 2014 of 7.65 million roubles ($119,000). He listed the ownership of two modest apartments and a share in a car parking garage.
