EU to allocate $51 million to Kyrgyzstan

Posted by Info on 15/05/2010

The EU will allocate $51 million in the period until 2013 towards legal and health care reforms in Kyrgyzstan.
The situation in Kyrgyzstan, where a bloody uprising led to the overthrow of the government in early April, worsened on Thursday when administrative buildings in three southern regions – deposed President Kurmanbek Bakiyev’s former power base – were stormed by his supporters.

“The country needs financial and political support from the EU. The financial plan will allocate $51 million in the period until 2013 for legal and health care reform,” Michel Voisen said on Saturday at the second Trans-Asian Parliamentary Forum in the Kazakh city of Almaty.

He said the OSCE is ready to support the new Kyrgyz government if it carries out its intension to stabilize the situation in the country and reform the health care system.

What Kyrgyz Interim Government Does Following Clashes

Posted by Info on 15/05/2010

Clashes broke out on Friday in the southern Kyrgyz city of Jalal-Abad between supporters of deposed President Kurmanbek Bakiyev and backers of the interim government.

Local media has reported fights between around 400-500 Bakiyev supporters and 4,000-5,000 backers of the interim government near the city’s administration building. At least 28 people have been injured.

Bakiyev supporters said earlier on Friday they were expecting 10,000 people to gather in Jalal-Abad in support of the ousted president. The interim government said the rally was “an attempt by Bakiyev’s supporters to gain revenge and destabilize the country”.

The situation in Kyrgyzstan, where bloody uprisings led to the overthrow of the government in early April, worsened on Thursday when administrative buildings in three southern regions were stormed by Bakiyev supporters.

Из Гуантанамо Отпустят Последнего Заключенного Из России

Posted by Info on 15/05/2010

Американский федеральный суд удовлетворил петицию 42-летнего Равиля Мингазова, находящегося в заключении на американской базе Гуантанамо на Кубе, и постановил, что администрация Барака Обамы должна выпустить его на свободу.

Этнический татарин Мингазов был захвачен в Пакистане в 2002 году. Еще семеро россиян, содержавшихся в Гуантанамо и получивших от СМИ прозвище “русские талибы” (выходцы из Татарстана, Башкирии, Кабардино-Балкарии, Челябинской и Тюменской областей), были экстрадированы в Россию в 2004 году.
B начале 2000-х годов Равиль Мингазов, когда-то танцевавший в армейском ансамбле, покинул Россию – по его словам, в связи с преследованием по религиозным мотивам.

Мингазов стал 35-м заключенным Гуантанамо из 48 подавших петиции, чей запрос был удовлетворен. Американская администрация должна ответить на постановление суда до 15 июня.
