As of April 11, the so-called “revolution”, which has already become permanent, continued in Kyrgyzstan (for more, see “No comment” on page 2). It seems that it is needed not for something concrete, but for the sake of the revolution itself: the leaders find out the relationship between themselves, having fun (the rally on the square is always funnier than working), and the mediators between them are beaten by the old tradition . For example, according to I.A. "24.kg", employees of the GTRK, NTS and September TV channels were beaten.
Meanwhile, relations between the authorities and journalists in Uzbekistan are becoming increasingly “civilized”. There, they had long since ceased to openly threaten and slap in the face. Now criminal cases are brought up and judged. So, after initiating a criminal case against the stringer of Deutsche Welle, Natalia Bushueva, the authorities, according to the same universal articles, made claims against her colleague from the same radio station, Yuri Chernogaev.
In addition, the investigation was completed and the case of Umida Niyazova was brought to court, which is charged under three articles of the Criminal Code: “Illegal travel abroad or illegal entry into the Republic of Uzbekistan”, “Smuggling” and “Production or distribution of materials containing a threat to public safety and public order with the use of financial or other material assistance received from religious organizations, as well as from foreign states, organizations and citizens. ” According to some, during the investigation, Niyazov was tortured.
