KGstan /WBSP


Analyzing past events I can say that man of Kyrgyzstan got their power with help of WBSP (woman battalion for special purpose) This humorous nickname was given while March revolution in 2005. Hundred women took the main role in the revolution, they were standing in the first line and actually it was the usual method of taking power. It is interesting that “banzai attack” is easy for women and hard for man, although ruling is unreachable border for the women.
If you reading news from KGstan you can see list of passed away men after revolution 2010 and there is no any woman name but some facts say that there were some of them. And such injustice towards them doesn’t have excuse.

A woman's value

It is sad to think that in many cases - especially of war - a man's life is considered more valuable than a woman's and a man's sacrifice makes him a hero, where a woman is often considered a victim or not considered at all.

We need to change this way of thinking!

Thank you for sharing news with us from Kyrgyzstan. Your insight is so valuable.

In friendship,
