BISHKEK, February 5. /TASS/. Dozens of people gathered for a protest outside the parliament and the presidential administration in Kyrgyzstan’s capital Bishkek on Thursday calling on Europe to stop meddling in the Central Asian republic’s affairs.
Zhenish Moldokmatov, the leader of the Kalys public movement that has organized the event, said last month Kyrgyz lawmakers drafted a law envisaging punishment for non-traditional sexual relations propaganda.
The European Parliament at its plenary meeting in January expressed deep concern over the plans of Kyrgyz lawmakers to adopt the law, threatening that the approval of the legislation could deteriorate bilateral relations.
In comments to the European Parliament’s reaction, Moldokmatov said: "Such a step by the Europeans has angered the majority of our citizens and is considered as an attempt to interfere in the republic’s affairs."
The politician said the Kalys movement would continue the fight against the attempts to impose on Kyrgyzstan the "Western values" that what he said contradict common sense.
The Kyrgyz protesters also urged the parliament to vote in favor of introducing the death penalty for pedophiles, saying that violence against children has been recently on the rise in the republic.
