MINSK/BISHKEK – The deposed Kyrgyz leader Kurmanbek Bakiyev has found refuge in the Belarusian capital of Minsk, that nation’s President, Alexander Lukashenko, said Tuesday.
Bakiyev, 60, is in Minsk with three family members, according to Lukashenko.
“He can stay and live here, and there is work for him,” Lukashenko said during question time in parliament.
He also noted that Bakiyev still considers himself to be the president of Kyrgyzstan.
Bakiyev had fled from Kyrgyzstan to neighbouring Kazakhstan last Thursday and resigned there in an internationally brokered agreement designed to restore calm.
