In an apparent spirit of compromise, I am told that the Bakiev administration and Kyrgyzstan parliament have worked out and accepted changes to the Constitution. In effect, this completes Bakiev's initial promises from last year and resolves the recent stand-off between reformers and pro-Bakiev supporters.
Kommersant has an interesting interview with the former Kyrgyz president Akaev. In it he discusses his views on the current stalemate in Kyrgyzstan, and his life in Russia away from politics.
