The CIS is in Town
The Commonwealth of Independent States will be having its annual summit in Bishkek this year. The actual meeting is on the tenth. The president of Russia, Medvedev, has already arrived in town. There are lots of signs, uniformed police and official vehicles appearing out of nowhere. I expect traffic in the center of town will be even worse than when the Shainghai Cooperation Organization held its meeting here in 2007.
