I know that in any case, today is the beginning of a drastic democratic transformation.
We don't want to give the authorities any excuse for violence.

We live in a regime built on force and lies. In essence, it's the same here as in Uzbekistan, except the government here is better at presenting itself to the outside world.
Western companies have invested billions of dollars, so of course they are interested in stability. But I think the international community has also understood that democracy is not only a slogan, but a guarantee of security and stability.
Our reaction will be based on a realistic analysis.
