wait till private keys for the cert are leaked by some disgruntled telecom company employee.. Puts the whole country internet at risk.

Unfortunately that might be the most effective way to fight this type of thing. Massive incident that would show the foolishness of the move.

I'm 100% sure that keys are in hardware device and couldn't be leaked. Kazakhstan has certificate infrastructure for years to issue digital certificates for their citizens. Nothing was leaked yet.
