The Former President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev addressed Kyrgyz citizens on the occasion of the 8th anniversary of the People’s Revolution on April 7, 2010.
«We will always remember the names of the heroes, who gave their lives for freedom and justice. Today we again pay tribute to them. That day, 87 Kyrgyz people were killed. Hundreds of people were injured, 45 of them died in the past 8 years, they could not regain their health. The people will never forget the bloody consequences of the two family-clan regimes. Therefore, the power in Kyrgyzstan must always follow the age-old wisdom of the people that an honest ruler has no relatives, and a clan-loving has no honor and conscience!» his statement says.
The Aksy events on March 17, 2002, March 24, 2005 and April 7, 2010 are the events that were linked by the history of our people’s struggle for freedom and justice.Almazbek Atambayev
