Violence in eastern Uzbekistan
CNN is reporting that there has also been an attempted suicide bombing at the Israeli embassy in Tashkent, although it's not clear whether there is any connection. Indeed, no one seems to have solid information about what is going on or who is responsible.
Part of the Volodymyr Campaign's mission is to support pro-democracy and human-rights activists in the former Soviet Union through political action in our own countries. However, it's not at all clear that the situation in Andijan has anything to do with democracy. Furthermore, we have always made clear that we will not support any group that uses or advocates violence.
