Background

Established on August 26, 1920, initially it was called Kirghiz ASSR ("A"-for Autonomous) and was a part of the Russian SFSR. On April 15-19, 1925 it was renamed into Kazakh ASSR and on December 5, 1936 it became a separate republic of the USSR, called Kazakh SSR . During the 1950s and 1960s Soviet citizens were urged to help settle the "Virgin Lands" of the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic. The influx of immigrants (mostly Russians, but including some deported minority nationalities) skewed the ethnic mixture and enabled non-Kazakhs to outnumber natives. The other nationalities included Ukrainians, Germans, Belarusians, Koreans, and others; the Germans at the time of independence formed about 8% of the population, the largest concentration of Germans in the entire Soviet Union. Independence has caused many of these newcomers to emigrate. Current issues include: resolving ethnic differences; speeding up market reforms; establishing stable relations with Russia, China, and other foreign powers; and developing and expanding the country's abundant energy resources.
