According to RBC Ukraine, Aydos Sadykov was born in the village of Qarabutaq (Aktobe region, Qazaqstan), near the border with Russia. He graduated from the history department of the Aktobe Pedagogical Institute.

Sadykov has been prosecuted in his homeland. In 2010, he was sentenced to two years in prison on charges of "hooliganism" and released in 2012. He and his supporters called the charges fabricated. Sadykov was an active public figure, organized protest rallies. He ran the Aktobe region branch of the oppositional All-National Social Democratic Party "Azat"; having left the party, he attempted to create the opposition public movement "Hastat" and an independent trade union at the enterprises of the Chinese oil company "SNPS-Aktobemunaigaz".

The latest video on his channel was uploaded today. It has the title "The Qazaq President has become a puppet to Russian influence agents."
