Later on the political situation on the Kazakhstan was becoming very comlex. States and peoples got mixed up. Some of them are remembered by their descendants, other disappeared forever.

Agter the Sacks came the tribes of Usuniwho moved the Central Asia. In the first half of the I millennium a great and powerful union Kanguiappeared in the south of Kazakhstan. To the west of their territory numerous tribes of Alansroamed (migrated). The tribes of Khunnualso passed through Kazakhstan. One of the Khunnu chiefs commanded the troops of the Kangui State. Khunnu, as some historians think, were the ancestors of Turks.

In the middle of the first millennium the changes of the ethnic sphere began in Kazakhstan. Turkic-speaking tribes prevailed. The centre of Turkic culture became Altai. There appeared the term “turk”in the written sources.

In the period of its highest development it occupied a vast area – from the Crimea to Mongolia and from the Yeniseito the Amudarya River. But in the VIII century kaganate fell under the attacks of the Karlukstribes. Karluks were changed by the representatives of Turkic dynasty – Karakhanids.The formed a powerful empire in the south. And approximately at the same time the Oguzestribes appeared in Kazakhstan, who became a leading force in the Aral steppes and Western Kazakhstan in the IX century. The Oguz State was absorbed by the Turkic tribe of Kypchakscoming from the east. The Russian princes called them Polovtsians. In the XI-XIII centuries Kypchaks played a very important role in different regions of Middle Asia. Their dynasties were even ruling in Khorezm. During centuries some of their tribes appeared in Asia and left a trace in the culture and history of the region. They are Kidani, Naimans and Kireits.But at the beginning of the XII century a new powerful force came – Mongolsunder the leadership of Chingis Khan. He took vast territories in the short period of time. One of their purposes was a march to Kazakhstan and Middle Asia. The reason for it was so-called “Otrar catastrophe”.

After the attack and fall of Otrar the Mongol army moved on and in 5 years Kazakhstan and Middle Asia became a part of Chingis Khan’s Empire.
