Statement of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic on the situation in Ukraine
Kyrgyz Republic shares the concern of the international community on the escalation of tension in Ukraine.
The Kyrgyz Republic condemns all acts aimed at destabilization of the situation in Ukraine. Therefore, we consider inappropriate and inadequate the statement of Viktor Yanukovych dated from 11 March. The only source of power in any country is the people. President, can not be a legitimate president, if he completely lost the confidence of his people, de facto lost the presidential power and, moreover, had escaped from the country.
These unconsidered actions and corruption of former Ukrainian authorities led to the current crisis and the deaths of dozens of innocent people. The Kyrgyz Republic supports the early settlement of the situation in Ukraine by peaceful means, through negotiations and dialogue, in accordance with the international law and the UN Charter.
