In an astonishing display of candour in a public hotel where the brunch was taking place, all of the businessmen ... chorused that nothing gets done in Kyrgyzstan if President Bakiyev’s son Maxim does not get 'his cut'.

Kyrgyzstan’s geography does little to give it a national peace of mind. Claiming to be the home of the apple and the walnut (both grow wild in Kyrgyzstan’s mountains) the former Soviet satellite borders international heavyweights such as China and high risk countries such as Afghanistan as well as its fellow ex-USSR sub-states Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. In the twenty years since 1991 and freedom from Soviet rule, Kyrgyzstan’s domestic politics have hardly been stable or even benevolent. To make matters worse, Kyrgyzstan finds itself pulled in different directions by its own minority ethnic groups, notably a number of Uzbek enclaves. Added to the mix is Kyrgyzstan’s almost unique international position of playing host to both US and Russian air bases. However important Kyrgyzstan may be to the global powers, both the US and Russia were less than forthcoming in providing aid and assistance in June 2010 as thousands of Kyrgyzstan’s ethnic Uzbek’s were forced to flee the country.
