Kazakh President: Little likelihood of color revolutions in post Soviet countries
Azerbaijan, Baku, April 26 / Trend E. Kosolapova/
The likelihood of new color revolutions in the post Soviet countries is felling down, because the people see no improvement in the economies of the countries where such revolutions took place, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev believes.
"These color revolutions, their initial wave has lost its power because people start to understand ... Permanent revolution is occurring in Kyrgyzstan..., but people's life is not improving," Novosti-Kazakhstan quotes Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev as saying in an interview with "Russia 24" TV channel on Wednesday.
As other example of negative effects of color revolution, Nazarbayev stressed Ukraine and Georgia.
Nazarbayev said that Ukraine had much more powerful economy than Kazakhstan before the orange revolution.
"Today, the volume of Kazakhstan's economy equals the volume of Ukraine's economy. Such stagnation has taken place in Ukrainian economy in the last five-seven-ten years. And this occurred in spite of Ukraine's location next to Europe and access to the seas!" Nazarbayev said.
Nazarbayev believes that some problems exist also in Georgia, which went through color revolution.
"I do not know what is happening in Georgia. But I do not think their things are going on better after they stepped aside from all us. It is impossible to live all the live on credit. It is necessary to make the economy self-sufficient, and to achieve this goal it is necessary to trade with neighbors," Nazarbayev said.
