Great piece of information. Together with the article found by opencurtain (Global Times, China –;t=LIST#1D3gO8PFVi2hvzog.99 ) some days ago, this gives a fairly holistic picture of the actual situation for Stans in KG.


I simply hope, that the Chinese factor is for price increasing purposes only, even though this might have impact on the value of Stans, too. It is very obvious, that the Kyrgese Government is frantically searching for sources of permanently higher income. They are keen in increasing their share. Most of the time, their politicians are claiming, that contracts of the „old days“ (former corrupt government) are invalid, since for their implementation no democratic process was involved. See enclosed link to a new article on „Centerra" taken from a German source.
