Become our tourist and you will find out that Kyrgyzstan witnessed the migration of people from southern Siberia in the 15th century. And so they did not have a single state from the 15th to the 19th centuries. The tribes tried to unite and make a state with a single leader, but all attempts were in vain, as a result of which the tribes were born with political views and an initiative for independence.
The Kyrgyz people wanted to join the Russian Empire from the beginning of the 18th century until the 20th century. They even sent envoys to the Russian Empire to inform them of their intentions. The North suffered from attacks and threats and therefore wanted to Annex Russia. Threats occurred both inside and outside the territory. The South did not intend to join the Russian Empire, and therefore was annexed by force. The annexation resulted from a nomadic lifestyle to a settled one and people became citizens and engaged in farming.
The Bolsheviks seized power of the Russian Empire in 1917 in the 20th century. They wanted to stop the exploitation of the people and to make the people equal. This period is the beginning of the Soviet Union. After that, the political and cultural life of the country was born. Education also began to develop. The statehood of the people was replaced by an Autonomous region, rather than a Republic. The darkest events were the ban on faith in God and any other religion. Many victims appeared and the killing of innocent people.
Kyrgyzstan gained independence in 1991 and people had thoughts of becoming independent, striving for a bright future, but everything went the other way around in decline, unemployment, crisis, decline in living standards, decline in political, social and economic life. As soon as the country gained independence, it gained a flag, coat of arms and anthem. In 1992, the country joined the UN, and in 1993 adopted the country's Constitution. But the country remained unstable, which led to internal conflicts, dissatisfaction with the government and eventually led to 2 revolutions in 2005 and 2010. In both cases, the people were against the government. But today the country is calm, here you can safely walk and enjoy the sights.
