Summary/Abstract: Republic of Kazakhstan is a new state, created in the post Soviet area of Central Asia. Its specificity is that the nation of Kazakhs has not been the national majority since the moment of getting independence. However, for these two decades Kahakhs became majority of the population in the country, what had been achieved in different ways: by higher birth rate than Slavic end population of European origin, by planned immigration of Kazakhs from China and Mongolia, but also by pressures and endangering of rights of Russians, other Slavs, Germans, what has in the period till the beginning of XXI century especially led to their mass emigration from Kazakhstan. To this we should add also favoring national Kazakhs in public administration, as well as insisting on the knowledge of kazakh language.
