Uzbeks stage protests in Moscow
In both cases they were calling for an end to the violence, and asking Moscow to step in to end what they called “pointless violence”.
They were concerned about the health and well-being of their relatives – ethnic Uzbeks living in Kyrgyzstan and caught in the violence.
Russian authorities have pledged to help as soon as they can.
Durdona Abagzhanova, an ethnic Uzbek from Kyrgyzstan who is a student in Moscow told RT that “Russia should definitely help to stop the gunfire, because the interim government is too weak.”
