After The Massacre In Kirgizia

Kirgizia Pogrom 9

After the massacre of 2010, they dislike the Uzbeks in Kirgizia. Uzbeks avoid settling in the same neighbourhoods with Kirghizes and it's difficult for them to find a job. Besides, they stopped teaching the Uzbek language even in Uzbek communities. Despite all this, Uzbeks do not want to go back to Uzbekistan and the reason for that is that nobody needs them there too.

Kirgizia Pogrom 10

The house of this elderly Uzbek woman has been burnt by some Kirghizes and since then she can't get a permission to build a new house in her own yard... There was a gas explosion in her house and it made the Kirghizes think that they had some weapons, which made them leave the street. The houses of a neighbouring street, however, were all burnt down, 18 people were killed.

Kirgizia Pogrom 11

Tensions had been growing in southern regions of the republic after the April revolution in Bishkek and in June, 2010, it developed into interethnic violence. Kirghiz young people armed with tommy guns which they had taken away from the police, stormed into Uzbek communities on armored troop carriers and began the massacre.

According to some officials, 470 people have been killed (the unofficial number reaches 2000 and about 74% of the killed are Uzbeks). Over 300 thousand women and children escaped into Uzbekistan.

    Almost all the asian republics of former ussr are in this condition, except for Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan, which inherited huge industrial and technological complexes from russians, as well as their resources, but also soviet and post-soviet education system and human resources of a good quality (literacy, scientific traditions, technology). Those republics which were simply fed by Moscow but not actually installed with industrial society infrastructure look like what you see on the pictures.

      You have probably never been to Armenia, or any of the countries concerned.

      You make a good point Hola. Why were some republics favored, and some not.
      Georgia was a nice warm place to live and Stalin obviously favored his homeland by building considerable infrastructure improvements there.
      Were some republics in disfavor because they had limited resources?

    What’s the difference between them?

    Aren’t we all just people trying to live our lives. Yes we are all people. Its not tribe against tribe, one country against another, its people against people. It is our past against our future. We take revenge for being wronged and violence begets violence and the future is put on hold. The world keeps turning, time moves forward but humanity goes backwards.

      IMO, that’s a very simplistic and view of the world we live in…

      • geoff says:

        Hirsh The truth does not have to be complicated, so yes my view is simplistic. Who will look after the future if we don’t. I have grand children and I have a dream that they could live in peaceful world. You might believe that peace will be achieved by guns or an army to defend yourself, but I believe we will have peace when there is peace inside us. Hirsh a peacfull loving world does not come from out their, it comes from in our own mind or heart.

      • geoff says:

        Hirsh You say become refugees and somehow runaway to America. And then say my view is simplistic.

  4. Hirsh says:

    Claim ethnic persecution and immigrate to the U.S., get out. Screw that place. Yeah, i know it’s hard to walk away, but your grandchildren will thank you for it.
