Kyrgyzstan ranks last in resistibility to crisis effects rating
Kyrgyzstan took the last place in the Resistibility Rating of crisis effects in economic, political and socio-cultural spheres of the ex-Soviet countries excluding Russia, the first report of the Joint Eurasian Expert Network said, "24.kg" reported.
Kyrgyzstan shares the last eighth place with Georgia, Armenia and Tajikistan while Kazakhstan takes the first place in the rating. The leader is followed by Azerbaijan and Belarus.
The fourth place shares Lithuania and Estonia, which are followed by Turkmenistan while Latvia, Ukraine is on the sixth and Uzbekistan, Moldova on the seventh position.
Aim of the research is to reveal basic development tendencies of the post-Soviet counties amid the crisis. The rating is based on results of an opinion poll carried out among experts of ex-Soviet space, political scientists, observers, journalists and representatives of state authorities. The experts did not include Russia in the resistibility rating owing to the two reasons: the research is oriented to covering the events mainly in the countries of Central Asia and Caucasus as well as by reason of proportionality. Being one of the largest states in the world in all its aspects Russia's inclusion in the rating would push all other states to the sidelines.
Among reasons which helped Kazakhstan to reach the first place the expert mention high activity of authorities and real results of the crisis-management program.
