Background on this from Katehon:

Russia and Kazakhstan are natural allies constituting the core of the Eurasian pole of power in the post-Soviet space. The two states’ integration has reached a high level. An example of this is Nazarbayev’s support for Moscow and Ankara’s efforts to secure Turkey’s withdrawal from the US and NATO spheres of influence.
