From Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty:

Kyrgyzstan's Foreign Ministry says ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych cannot be considered the legitimate leader of the country.

In a statement issued March 11, the Foreign Ministry said the current crisis in Ukraine was caused by corruption and wrong decisions by the former authorities of that country when Yanukovych was president.
"The only source of power in any country is its people, and a president who lost his people's trust, who de facto lost his presidential authority and, moreover, who fled the country, cannot be legitimate," the statement says.
