Protesters: Belarus threatens us with the Customs Union
About 80 people took part in the protest carrying the posters “Janysh Bakiyev is a murderer and a butcher”, “Belarus embassy get out of Kyrgyzstan”, “Evacuation or extradition”, “Belarus is a sanctuary for murderers” and etc.
“We don’t understand the position of the President of the country Aliaksandr Lukashenka and the ambassador to Kyrgyzstan Viktar Dzienisienka. Why do they shelter the Bakiyevs? We feel sorry for Lukashenka. It turns out “a thief covers another thief”. We wouldn’t want him as a president to repeat the fate of Bakiyev. We communicate with the common citizens of Belarus via the Internet. They don’t want warm relations between two countries to be spoiled over two presidents,” stated Algy Kylychev.
According to Arstanbek Sagyndykov, “Instead of delivering us the Bakiyevs, the President of Belarus Aliaksandr Lukashenka threatens us with the Customs Union.”
