BISHKEK, February 27. /TASS/. Several dozen people have gathered near the US Embassy in Kyrgyzstan’s capital Bishkek Friday to protest against US interim Charge d’Affaires Richard Miles’ arrival to the country. The demonstration was organized by two political parties and Russky Mir (Russian World) Kyrgyz public movement.
"All disturbances in the world are a consequence of United States’ activity," leader of Kyrgyzstan’s Communist Party Klara Azhibekova said. "We do not want the repetition of Ukrainian events in our country, so we stand against ‘color revolutions’," Azhibekova stressed. Protesters say that Miles’ arrival may mean that Americans are planning to launch an operation on destabilizing the social and political situation in Kyrgystan as parliamentary election in the republic is scheduled for autumn.
Local media reported that another diplomat was supposed to serve as US ambassador in Kyrgyzstan, and his candidacy had been approved by Bishkek. However, Washington sent Miles instead despite the fact that he had been retired for the last years. The law stipulates that charge d’affaires does not require to receive preliminary approval from official Bishkek (so-called agreement). Local media call Miles the "screenwriter for ‘color revolutions’ in Yugoslavia and Georgia" and express concern about the repetition of such events in Kyrgyzstan which has already gone through two revolutions.
Bishkek City Police told a TASS correspondent that demonstrators near the US Embassy did not disturb public order.
