Askar Akayev claims that his decision not to use force against the opposition prevented a civil war
"I had no right to order the law enforcement bodies and presidential guards to shoot at people on March 24. It could have led to a civil war and numerous victims. No bloodshed can justify the aim to stay in power," reads Akayev's address published on the Web site of the KABAR agency. Akayev addressed the people as the President of Kyrgyzstan. He did not speak about his plans for the future but assured that he "would use his authority to protect human and civil rights of the Kyrgyz people to prevent disorders and outrage." Akayev expressed satisfaction with the fact that people were forming militia units to protect law and order seeing the inability of the new authorities to do it. "This is a display of the communal national spirit of the Kyrgyz people and their democratic views, which have been consolidated over the period of independence," Askar Akayev stressed.
