Most of Belarusians consider that the decision of the country authorities to provide shelter for ousted president of Kyrgyzstan Kurmanbek Bakiyev is wrong. This has been certified by the results of a survey, conducted in June 2010 by the Independent Institute of Socio-Economic and Political Researches, APN informs.
According to them, only 23.2 percent of respondents agree with Alexander Lukashenko, that it was an "anti-constitutional takeover", while according to 47.2 percent, it was "people's uprising against corrupted power".
Moreover, only 17.9 percent said that Alexander Lukashenko's decision to provide shelter for the ousted Kyrgyz President is right, 24.1 percent considered it wrong, because Kurmanbek Bakiyev "was ousted by fair people's uprising". 40.6 percent named it wrong, because, regardless of who is right in Kyrgyzstan, "it is not Belarus's business to interfere with their political conflicts".
Treatment to extradition of Kurmanbek Bakiyev to the new authorities of Kyrgyzstan has also become the consequence of such treatment to these events (the survey was conducted before the refusal of the Prosecutor General's Office). In particular, 11 percent consider that "he should not be extradited, he defended his legal power", 20.1 percent - "he should not be extradited, since Belarus gave him a shelter, it should not retreat", 17.5 percent - "he should be extradited, because murders must not remain unpunished", and 34.2 percent - "he should be extradited, because the Kyrgyz internal conflict is not our business".
At the same time, only 9.1 percent of respondents agreed with that "the power in Belarus will change, since it happened in Kyrgyzstan in April 2010".
