The Kyrgyz opposition is against the Customs Union and insists that American military base to remain in the republic. The leader of opposition Ravshan Zheenbekov, the former MP, stated to 24.kg news agency.
According to him, we mustn't enter the CU without making full account. Oppositionists don't exclude that protests can start owing to it. But they aren't going to gather people. "We want to invite official authorities to public debate. If Constitution doesn't work, we will switch to political technologies. Bakiyev is still in Kyrgyzstan, but in another appearance. I was always for American base. The budget of the country without it loses million of dollars," Ravshan Zheenbekov said.
He laughed at the question of who finances the opposition movement and said that journalists know everything themselves. "People said that Bakiyev was sponsored by America, Atambayev - by Russia. We are financed by Kyrgyz people," Ravshan Zheenbekov noted.
