Georgia Says Russia Meddling in Kyrgyzstan
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 9 Apr.'10 / 03:14

Georgia is watching development in Kyrgyzstan with "deep concern", President Saakashvili's spokesperson, Manana Manjgaladze, said on April 8.

"The Georgian President thinks, that it is only up to the Kyrgyzstan's people to decide who should be in the government of Kyrgyzstan," she said. "Despite [Moscow's] denials, according to the information available for us, it is absolutely obvious that Russia is roughly interfering with Kyrgyzstan's internal affairs and is trying to play geopolitical games at the expense of the Kyrgyz people."

"We call on all the forces, including those who are in control of the capital [Bishkek] not to allow outside forces to use you against the fundamental interests of the country," Saakashvili's spokesperson said.

Russia's PM, Vladimir Putin, was the first foreign leader to call and render assistance to Kyrgyz opposition leader, Roza Otunbayeva, who is now in charge of an interim government, as President Kurmanbek Bakiyev escaped the capital.

Michael McFaul, a senior White House adviser on Russian affairs told journalists in Prague on April 8, that what had happened in Kyrgyzstan was not a Russian-sponsored coup.

"The people that are allegedly running Kyrgyzstan - and I'm emphasizing that word because it’s not clear exactly who’s in charge right now - these are all people we've had contact with for many years.  This is not some anti-American coup.  That we know for sure.  And this is not a sponsored-by-the-Russian coup.  I've heard some reports of that.  There’s just no evidence of that as yet," McFaul said.
