Abstract

The author analyzes the preconditions and the course of the revolutionary events in Kyrghyzstan in April this year. He tries not only to reconstitute the succession of what was taking place, but also to reveal the objective trends in the economy and politics of Kyrghyzstan which had made for such a dramatic ending of the 2005 “Tulip revolution”. The author’s main efforts are given to analyzing (1) the activities of the supreme echelons of power and (2) the revolutionizing influence those actions had on the Kirghiz society.
